I love Charles deLint. He's been one of my favorite authors for a very long time and every time I pick up one of his books I am enchanted and enthralled.

So what in the heck happened with Moonheart? The characters are two-dimensional, info-dumping, monologueing self-analysts who can't keep my interest for more than a page. The plot feels thready and implausible with leaps of faith that are larger than the Grand Canyon. There are so many story lines that the story is convoluted and jumps around. I am not sympathetic to any of the characters and most annoy me.

I made it half-way through this book, just hoping the darn thing would get better, before discarding it. I completely lost it, however, when Taliesin was introduced as the villian. Erm. No.
