Read from September 27 to October 01, 2010
Very disappointing, Although the descriptions of the land and the weather were compelling, clear, and engrossing. However, the descriptions and development of the characters were not very good. Karena is a weak, and ultimately unbelievable, person to me. It is as if she never grew up or into the person she should have been. Her twin Charles is a one-dimensional character who is not likable or easily readable.
Overall, I just found the book to be depressing and not very interesting with the exception of a few exciting stormchasing scenes.
