I think I am going to abandon this at 60%. The story should have ended right after the fight of the champions, but it keeps dragging on. I was willing to give it a try, but there is a point beyond which I cannot continue, which is a shame, since I really like Angel's other books.
The characters in "Diego" are sticky sweet, others yet are obnoxious and blind to obvious facts, all of them are sick and tortured and abused and misunderstood all over the place. I can't stand the melodrama. Not going into any more details, many have already done so.
First part of the book was 4 stars, the rest is 2.
