Sequel to Dhampir, which I read before the switchover to the new server. I”ll get a link to my review of that up when I get the old entries up.
This novel is pretty good, and gives me hope in the “hey, I could’ve written this… I should try to get published!” way. I like the characters and the world a lot, so the fact that it’s a rather workmanlike book (like the other one) doesn’t bother me much. I’t hard to pin down exactly why but the plotting seems clunky and at times heavy-handed. They’re missing the light touch necessary to make conspiracies really work. Still, the characters and the setup are engaging.
