Oh dear. I loved S.M. Peters' debut Whitechapel Gods. It was a great bit of steampunk and the Internet had led me to believe that Ghost Ocean was its sequel. It is not, as far as I can tell. Ghost Ocean appears to be an urban fantasyish story about a group of supernatural creatures that imprisons other supernatural creatures. I think. To be perfectly honest, I found the first 100 pages to be nonsensical. Being a seasoned genre reader, I'm usually pretty patient with being thrown into a new world and learning the ropes as I go, but the idea of reading another 400 pages just like the first 100 was just irritating. I'm sure I can blame some of this on my current string of nights of crappy sleep and overall depressed mood, but I also know what I like and there was nothing intriguing pulling me forward through the plot.

Amanda OH No! I really enjoyed Whitechapel Gods also and i have this book but have been leery of it, (mainly from the looks of the cover alone)- so sad to hear my fears of the story realized
