Holding smoke is an interesting book, but lacks a hook to bring anything out. The main character seems dull and under achieved and the overall plot seems gray. There isn't much about this book to enjoy. A great start to writing, but it needs more development in my opinion.
Holding Smoke was a decent book, with mystery, romance, and thrills. I found the ending a bit hard to understand, but the rest of the book was easy to read, and I found all of the characters diverse and entertaining.
