it was ok
bookshelves: childrens, fantasy
Read in August, 2009

This series has its good points -- female protagonists, some cool characters, humor. And its bad points -- too much action, too many characters, uncertainty of tone, chaos.

This particular book is all about a war, so it's a lot of battles and well, that was the most boring of the LotR movies, so I certainly think it's the most boring of these books. Also, Puck is getting increasingly gross. If this series is trying to be aimed at girls, or girls and boys, it's leaning a little too heavily on the boy's side in this book.

The book also seems to be afraid of emotion. The most emotional scenes feel abrupt, wrong, and flat. (Think Sirius going through the Veil in book 5.)

I'm also not keen on the direction this series seems to be headed for the next book.
