Review: Boring and Unedited

The Iron Butterfly (Iron Butterfly, #1) - Chanda Hahn

This book had a lot of potential. But it fell so far short of what it could have been, simply because nobody seemed to edit this. It was full of misplaced prepositions that made my English minor scream. There were question marks everywhere, in places where there clearly wasn't a question. Missing quotation marks, misspelled words, and poor sentence structures.

 

If only someone had proofread this!

 

The plot itself was dull. What looked like an epic fantasy turned into mostly a lot of explaining and not showing. Things that should have been shocking and freaky to a teenager didn't get much reaction. And the main character seemed to want to burst into tears at the slightest angry look.

 

This book could have been good if it had just been carried out properly.
