Assessment:

Plot: Velazquez's intriguing novel would certainly be strengthened through a more streamlined focus and reorganization. Overall, the work is weakened by convoluted plotting, while its narrative pacing lacks consistency – the world takes too long to be interrupted from its norm, and then proceeds with relentless action, resulting in a somewhat imbalanced narrative structure.

Prose/Style: While the dialogue is lively and sincere, the prose is rather basic in execution, lacking descriptive qualities to bring the reader into the atmosphere of the book.

Originality: Bringing Hell to the reader, this book’s premise is fascinating, but lacks in delivery, losing its promise between a confusing plot and flat characters.

Character Development: The protagonist, Landon, is ultimately overshadowed by the complementary characters, who are provided greater internal development. More attention given to the cast as a whole would better allow the rich machinations of the storyline to resonate with invested readers.
