mass market for sure, but a cut above the ordinary. there were moments that were actually very good. that being said, the ending had me rolling my eyes so much i was certain i had injured myself.

hugely disappointing. this should have thrilled me, but the story is trite, the characters wooden, and the writing unimpressive. sad.

this is a rreally good book in an equally good series. it's pacing is rather slow. like one character in the book suggests; "it's Indian time." one learns a lot about a the Navajo culture in the process.

"I loved this! It's not very long, but worth the time!"

“I can't see the logic in medicating a grieving person like there was something wrong with her, and yet it happens all the time... you go to the doctor with symptoms of profound grief and they push an antidepressant at you. We need to walk through our grief, not medicate it and shove it under the carpet like it wasn't there.”
Richard Wagner, The Amateur's Guide To Death and Dying; Enhancing the End of Life
