I hated this book so much.
This book was tough to get into, considering I hated the main character from the start. He is a 14 year old boy leading a gang of ex-convicts. He is the anti-hero, with the book opening detailing his rape of farmer's daughters, and frequent visualizations of just about every person he meets dying to his blade in their chest or cutting off their head. Yeah we get it. You have to be cruel and disgusting to be the leader and you are the young boy that is so bad he frightens ghosts....
At some point I just stopped caring.
At least it was short. Although it should have ended after he gets stabbed by his father. That would have made a much better book.
