Boring boring boring! I was desperate and it was the middle of the night - this is my only excuse for giving it a try. Dreadful
She takes on some fundamental questions in this one! Love of several kinds, the concept of family and identity ..., the works!
An interesting connection to the topic of racism is only suggested in this book. A more complex and thoughtful treatment of it would have made all the difference. Vocabulary issues also detracted. Ms. Murphy should never use the words "palpable" or "belie" again.
Dull characters, predictable plot with underwhelming high spots. Don't bother with this series. It had some promise but doesn't deliver
I'm hoping the story gets deeper from here. The characters are sketched but need development. Maybe that's what's in the next book.
Faith Hunter manages to deliver a good tale with complex characters again in Black Arts. One book builds on the last and foreshadows elements for the next.
Jane is a great combination of human and fantasy. What I appreciate most about these books is the depth of character development, the humor and the anguish, the tiny details and the threads left hanging for pick up later.
This is a terrible book made out of cliche and a kitchen sink plot. The narration is stilted and expressionless. Dreadful!
So very badly written! The person who reads it does so in a monotone.
The story is flat, the characters stereotypical, the narrative is full of anachronisms and cliche.
