Review: For me this book falls somewhere between good and mediocre. It was slightly confusing for a while because it jumps between timelines in the past and present. The story became a little more compelling after the storylines began to converge. I think it had a cool sci-fi/fantasy concept about words having real power and how they can be used to persuade but I only moderately cared about the characters.
