it was ok

I really wanted to like this book. Urban fantasy featuring subterranean exploration of abandoned subway stations is my favorite subsubsubgenre ever! Sadly, something about it just felt very flat to me. The main characters seemed lacking in dimensionality in a way that would be fine if they were kids, but seems inexplicable in adults. The villains were almost comic in a kind of Dahl-esque way, but it felt like they were supposed to be taken seriously. The whole thing actually felt like YA that had been upgraded in target age at the last minute. Confusing.
