I've enjoyed a number of DeMille's other books but this one dragged. I kept waiting for it to get going, but it never really did. The ending was fairly predictable and extremely abrupt, especially considering the many hours and details it took to get there. Plus I kept expecting something to come of the subplots that were introduced, but they all seemed to fizzle. I think someone else suggested the need for a good editor, and I'm afraid I'd have to agree.
I've been a fan of the Jesse Arnold books for years, but this one wasn't worth the time. The plot was weak, the dialog was stilted and just didn't ring true, and the narrator consistently paused in weird places. I'm disappointed that I used my monthly credit on this one.
