Read from December 27 to 28, 2011

I liked The Dervish House so I figured I'd give this a shot. It was all right. This one felt fairly boy-centric though. I mean, Sen is awesome, and so was the Captain, but they were almost sidekicks. Some of the language reminded me of Ysabeau S. Wilce. She's better at it though. Dates approximate.

Oh, and people who remember Sliders (American TV show) will probably find the premise to be familiar.


23 May 2012 - there are some scenes that I very much enjoy from this book. (Most of them involve Sen, unsurprisingly.) But I don't really feel motivated to re-read the whole thing.
