Review: I had mixed feelings about this book. It tooke me a while to really get into the story but once I did I enjoyed it. However, the plot wasn't very action packed and a lot of the story was dealing with Mackie's internal struggle and slowly discovering what really goes on in the town of Gentry. I was dissapointed to hear that this was written as a stand alone novel and there are currently no plans to write a sequel. I think that would have made reading this book more worthwhile because this book did involve a lot of set up and introduction of the situation in Gentry, and the end of this book marked a turning point for the town. I really liked the premise of the book and thought that it played out well even though it was slow in parts. The revealtion of everything that happens in Gentry and the reasons behind it was really great.
I thought the characters in the book were really cool. Roswell and Emma were some of the micest characters ever. Mackie was a really great protagonist and I liked seeing the way he changed at the end of the book. I was also intruiged by the characters who lived in the House of Mayhem, the Morrigan in particular. I wanted to learn more about them and how they live and was excited whenever they were around.
Overall, I did like this book. My only real comlaints being that it was a little slow in some parts and I wish there was going to be a sequel.
