This is one of Jones' sketchy books; it couldve been a trilogy at least in someone else's hands.

It's a decent read, and I really did get caught up in the action. The characters, as always in Jones' books, were completely realized and believable, and she has a knack for making them likeable. The story is strange and unique and well told - but in the end, it leaves me feeling really unsettled.

For me, this is one of her second-tier books. Archer's Goon, Dogsbody, the Chrestomanci quartet, Fire and Hemlock - those are my favorites, among her books and among most others, too.
