I can’t rave about this book enough. The pages are so rich with descriptions and development. That ending was fantastic and I didn’t see it coming! You can see the influence from video games and anime. Honestly, and this may be because I just did a rewatch, I found a few small nods to Code Geass in the story which is awesome because that series doesn’t get a lot of hype anymore imo even with the new movie coming out. I also thought of Tron while reading this and the soundtrack was great to listen to while reading it! (the second movie whose name I have scrubbed from my brain lol)
