This is one of the rare cases where I worked out a rating and chose to round up rather than going with the closer rating. When I put this through my system, it came out to 3.85, but it honestly deserves the boost.

I would describe this book almost as Nigerian Percy Jackson but for adults. It has a similar feel of figuring out who you are and where your limits are, but with more grit and more attitude. David Mogo himself wasn't terribly likable for me, but the other characters are really endearing, each in their own way. My only wish was that David be more proactive, and for the last third of the book to have gone on forever. It really races at the end, and I wasn't ready for it.
