I'm a fan of Ms. Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series, so I decided to give this, her earlier series, a try, too. I read the first and second books in this series, but gave up when I got about 40 pages into the this one. I never really got into this series, but kept reading, expecting that something would happen to make me like these characters and their world. It never did. I'm not saying this series is bad, it's just not to my taste.

Ms. Hunter was rather parsimonious with explanations that would have enhanced (my enjoyment of) the first book, doling it out in the second and even third entries in this series. I'm aware that authors often explain the worlds they create throughout the books, but waiting until the second book to describe how the world even came to be is a bit much for me. By the time I got the background information on this world that might have deepened my enjoyment of these books, I was already over it.
