I liked this book until about 3/4 of the way through. Then it all fell apart for me, becoming rather trite and uninteresting. Many people love this story, and the author is certainly talented, but it just didn't work for me.

This is possibly one of *the* worst books I have ever read. Great premise - terrible storyline and execution. Not only is the writing marginal, but the author re-uses the same hokey imagery over and over "quicksilver child", "thin hair, held back with barettes". There is little redeeming about the characters, and the subplots are simply unbelievable. Don't waste a credit or your time on this one. If I were the publisher, I'd be embarrassed.
