it was ok
bookshelves: gods-monsters
Read from May 01 to 25, 2012

I was excited originally about the subject matter and setting of this book. Mafia monsters and Italy? Sounds great! However the book was written in German and translated to English and I think that is where the trouble came.The characters were confusing and wooden in their actions sometimes.
Good premise but it fell short. I wont be reading the others in the series.

Julie Reece The cover is so cool it made me want to read it!

Sylvia Yeah the cover drew me in also but the story was a disappointment for me but I guess everyone reads it differently :)
