I found this book to be very slow moving. I have to make myself read it. I haven't finished it.

A disappointment when held up to the other Hand novels. The story opens with a wonderful intriguing town surrounded by mystery and throw backs to ancient pagan religions. The entire town seems to be populated by old actors/actresses and has a little bit of the unknown, the mysterious lurking around every corner. Enter our young heroine who is a typical teenager filled with angst, drugs and sex and then mix that with an ancient God that is trying to be reborn to the world. The story was very gripping and entertaining for half the book and then it began to drag to (at least in my viewpoint) very disappointing end.
