I made it to book 7 ONLY because the last 5 books were given to me. I really can not understand how so many people can give such bad writing 4 and 5 stars.
I continued reading because I wanted to see what happens. Believe it or not, it is a decent story "idea" it's the execution of the story that is so bad.
Rachel is the the most dish rag character I have ever seen and she gets worse with each book. The only decent character, Kisten, was killed off. Ivy is obnoxious and Jenks is starting to grate on the nerves in White Witch Black Curse.
I really don't understand how Ms Harrison's publisher puts this stuff in print the way it is written.
I take it the author has a fixation of her own about her hair because every other page has at least one mention of a character's hair. This smacks of brand new, first time author. So what's the deal, no one else would be able to get this kind of stuff published.
Plus, add in the misspelled words, plots that don't go anywhere and completely, unlikable characters (mainly the heorine) and you have to wonder how the publisher is still in business.
Come on Ms Harrison, read the critisim as well as the cudos for your books and then read the books yourself. I would "bet" you would see all the flaws.
Only way I will continue this series is if I get the books for free. (Still can't finish White Witch, Black Curse....Blahh!!) If I don't get them for free, no big loss.
