Not actually all that scary, Petweenus is at least a fairly quick read for being almost 400 pages. I enjoyed the book, but I felt little connection with the characters. The characters themselves seemed to have little connection with each other. (Note: this is trying really hard to avoid spoilers, so apologies if anything sounds vague...) Throughout the climax of the novel, the disposal of some characters is mentioned in passing, a name in a roster of deaths. Characters that supposedly mean so much to Haylee, the protagonist in the novel, should have some sort of emotional reaction. It's a little illogical that a person would die for someone they just met, but won't even mourn people so close to her. The ending is a little frustrating, almost feeling as if Haylee's fundamental character is violated. Also frustrating is certain inconsistencies, contradictions, or loose ends, from certain scalps and shrunken heads to the lack of resolution. I'm not discouraging those interested from reading it; I'm merely saying it's not particularly special.
