Plot: The plot here is engrossing to the point where the reader will not want to stop reading. The premise is original and gripping, and the first few pages will simply hook the audience. The plot is fast-paced and stark but works effectively.

Prose/Style: The author is an extremely talented writer. Description here is sparse, which helps keep the story moving at a clipped pace, but at times a little more detail would be helpful.

Originality: This work is singular and unique. The premise is intriguing and unexpected, and the reader can't help but keep reading in anticipation for the next development and final resolution of the story.

Character Development/Execution: The author does a great job with characterization, making each come alive on the page, even Daniel who is already dead by the time the story opens. However, Daniel's ex-wife Pamela pushes the edges of extremism and could use a tiny bit more restraint in her character development.
