did not like it
bookshelves: didnt-finish, urban-fantasy
Read in February, 2009

** spoiler alert ** I enjoy the urban fantasy/kick-butt heroine genre, but I'll admit that I had to give up on this one. I can't remember exactly what page I was on, but it was right after the heroine woke up to find that she had been subjected to entire body surgery in order to turn her into an exact replica of her dead sister. Needless to say this happened without her consent and against her will. Did I mention that she had watched that same sister die mere days before? Yuck.

If Joanna (the heroine) had shown any real personality or grabbed my interest before this happened I might have been able to see it as an interesting plot twist and keep reading, but she hadn't and this was the last sign I needed to put the book down and move on to something else.
