This ARC review is ridiculously late. It took me forever to slug through this book, but I have to preface, it was not the stories fault, or the plot etc., it was the typography. This is a lesson to authors – your formatting matters. Why BERKLEY didn’t check their ARC output is beyond me. I understand it’s just the ARC – but you are trying to get reviews out of these and the LIGATURES were missing. For the none typography nerds out there – that’s the fi – when it converts to one glyph. See, in some fonts the fi combines and removes the dot on the i. Some fonts have this glyph, others do not. The master file used ligatures – when they converted it to an eARC the converted font didn’t have that glyph, which means EVERY fi in the book was missing. There are 3681 words that use an fi. It made this ARC almost impossible to read. I apologize for the long rant, but I feel obligated to read the book because I received and ARC, but found it impossible to enjoy the book since I was constantly being popped out of it.
