Unspoken Truth pulled a couple of really annoying narrative tricks that really pissed me off, nothing I could be specific about without spoiling but it made me think that the whole emotional arc of the novel was a fake, and that grated. The first half is pretty good though, it almost feels like a totally separate novel, a good strange-new-world story.
Very similar to what I thought
, too. That particular narrative trick really annoyed me, and the perspective the novel is written from no longer makes sense after the reveal. Although I did enjoy the story, for the most part.
