One of those books I read and sorta liked while I was reading it ... but when I think back on it, I can't remember why I liked it. Maybe I was in a good mood for some reason. No idea. But once I picked up the sequel I remembered that the first book wasn't very good, after all. The characters are pretty dull and the plot is disorganized and hard to follow. Not the worst book ever, but it's just ... eh.
