GHOSTS IN THE SNOW (Mystery/Fantasy) - DNF
Jones, Tamara Siler - 1st book
Bantam, 2004- Paperback
*** Dubric Bryerly, the head of security at Castle Faldorrah, sees the dead. In this case, the victims are young servant girls who are brutally murdered.
*** I loved the premise of this book, but not the book itself. Partly my fault for not realizing it was a fantasy set in some, according to other reviewers on Amazon.com, medieval world in a post-apocalyptic, post-technological age. The period seemed to me to be an excuse for the author to avoid any historical research on customs or language. The character wears a tunic and is a knight, but uses a fork and always has a paper and pencil at hand. I shan't even go into the problems with the grammar or dialogue. I didn't make it even close to my usual 50-page rule.
This may work for those who love pure fantasy, but it didn't work for me.
