I keep reading Lackey's new books because of some misguided sense of author loyalty. I realized a while back that I'd fallen out of love with her writing. Her characters are too one-dimensional, her plotting is cliched and at times forced, the endings are rushed, and her main characters all appear to be variations on the same theme. However, I had enjoyed The Fairy Godmother because it was fresh and original. I was therefore looking forward to this one. It was a let down. All of Lackey's faults were highlighted in this book. Plus, the obligatory romance story (it is a Luna book, after all) was thrown in as an afterthought and never fully developed. I'm not sure if this author is worth the aggravation any more. I still love some her older books and often read them for comfort, but I doubt I'll be buying anymore of her stuff. If I have to, I'll borrow from a library.
