I suppose teens might like this, though expect they'd enjoy it more in a movie, to better experience the pyrotechnics and special effects. That's really all there was to it. I guess I liked Denis O'Hare's voice in the sample, and had just finished a couple of really good books featuring twins and history-based witchcraft and mythology tales. This is nothing like those. I'm embarrassed that I actually bought this, but felt it would be a public service to strongly caution other mature adults against making the same mistake.
I thought, since one main character was supposed to be a detective, that there should be a mystery in it. It turned out to be just a fantasy, much sounding like it was written for children but having way too much violence, sex, and profanity for any child I'd want to know. That said, I was slow to realize that most of the characters were not real people at all. I thought they just needed medication. They didn't get it, and by the end had all gone off the deep end in the most teenage zombie b-movie way imaginable. Now I have to go kick myself around the block a couple of times for once again, incredibly, being taken in by publisher and apparently friends of the author reviews. That said, there were some points having nothing to do with the story or the performance where I though it could have morphed into a good book, but guess I'll have to use my own imagination for that.
