This was pretty good, but I had higher expectations for it. Harris is such a good writer and I kind of feel like this book really did not showcase her talents in the telling of the story. And it think that was the main problem: the story read like a story being TOLD, not experienced, shared, lived... the many characters were not fleshed out. They remained nothing more than archetypes, just repeating the two-dimensional characteristics found in a dictionary of mythology. Also, the ending was a bit of a disappointment since it was rather open...
