Just not my type of book
on 29 June 2014
What I cannot decide is whether teenaged girls would like it.
To me the writing seems stilted, the plot unoriginal, and the characters - especially the heroine - thoroughly unpleasant. To be fair, this might not be her fault: but - arguably because of the way she has been brought up - she's a mess. But this is the view of a elderly male who has never watched Buffy slay vampires and all the other products filling our cinema and TV screens: were I more informed I would probably call this formulaic.
Having said which I'll probably buy the last book in the sequence when it comes out just to satisfy my curiosity
