Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So close... so very close. Maybe it's the fact that this is multivolume, so there are passages that just drag, while others speed along because we have to get to a climax/cliffhanger to keep readers hooked? or maybe it's the half-baked explanations and plot twits? Hard to know. Or maybe, just maybe, it was because I didn't really like or care for Edie.
The take-off on Faust was great, as was the "Wolfram & Hart"-esque firm that Kian works for. The game? Not quite sure what that was about. And of course Edie was going to have some second thoughts once she started to actually getting to know the Teflon crowd - if only something interesting had been done with that.
