  • Setting: Very rich.
  • Style: An intrigue that hides everything from you until each reveal.
  • Pacing: A very nice crescendo.

  • Story: At first glance, it looks like a romance, but it turns into something else halfway through. Feels realistic. Nice tension. Good twists. First time around, you really get caught up in the intrigue.
  • Ending: The last line is lame or badly delivered, I don't know, but it's really annoying.
