bookshelves: fantasy, 2008, tgif
Recommended for: anybody that likes selfish, moronic female leads.

** spoiler alert ** The first book, Stray, was better and I only gave it three stars so this book is getting two. This book summarized in a word: boring.

The first third of the book was pretty good. It kept my attention and I was interested to see where the author was going. However, around the second third of the book, the book hit a lull. The only action was a couple of dead bodies with broken necks. Woohoo. Exciting. Oh, and the main character, Faythe's, angst over everything under the sun.


The author focuses far too much time on Faythe's relationship with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Marc. Marc wants Faythe to give him some kind of reassurance that she's not with him only because he's a warm body to curl up next to. She won't give him that reassurance because she's a free spirit or something. She is incredibly selfish.

And she's stupid. There is a bit in the story about stupid women in movies (The Howling) that run outside, almost naked, without a weapon. Dumb Faythe is supposed to be guarding her mom and two other people, and she goes down in to the basement by herself. And the light is "burnt out". Moron doesn't even think, oh, I wonder if someone might be down there? Faythe is just as stupid as the women in the movies that she mocks.

Then there is the part where she doesn't want to harm this guy because she's "already hurt him enough". This is what she's actually thinking as he's beating the living crap out of her. Seriously.

I don't think it is a good sign that I found this book less interesting than the first.

Barbara I only want say to something about the "Howling" thing, I belive that's the point. People constanly makes mistakes like that. That's what funny(in a weird way lol) everyone can be stuped once in a while. Even the ones criticicing the woman in the movie.

Hope my comment is/was english sucks.

M. I agree that Faythe was extra dumb in this book and she considers herself smart. She is so delusional, lol.
