written by Dana Reinhardt

Harmless is written in a very catchy narrative style that will have you fully engrossed in just a few page turns. It's conversational, and while it is filled with description, it is written in such a way that the description is not overwhelmingly dense and really blends in with the rest of the writing. It's easy to develop different feelings toward every individual character, as they all have very powerful and unique personalities. Despite all this, which seems like a perfect set-up, the plot falls short. It's really a quite predictable cookie-cutter plot, and was slightly painful to read, particularly toward the end. It left me cringing, seriously hoping page after page that there'd be some gripping twist, but nope, nothing, and a book, no matter how well set-up, just can't be good without a good plot.

Rating: 3/5
