it was ok
bookshelves: science-fiction-fantasy
Read in August, 2009

Bottom line, I was disappointed. The main character was appealing, but her relationships with her aunt and friends just did not seem well-developed or realistic. And I just could not connect with the way that the mythological creatures were presented. They just seemed to come across very stilted and stereotyped. And then side-theme of "the big bad oil company against the environment" just strikes me as way overdone. Maybe later books in the series get better, but I gave up about halfway thru this one. I might have kept on if my reading time wasn't already so limited and scarce. Unfortunately for this book, there are others waiting that I would rather get to, than to keep struggling trying to like this one. In conclusion, it is not a bad book, it is good enough in its own way, but just not as good as I was hoping that it would be.
