Unwept - Tracy Hickman, Laura Hickman

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

I don't quite know how to review this one. It was a pretty bland read for me. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it either. The mystery aspect pulled me in from the get go and it was a fast paced read. However, there were too many questions and not enough answers until right at the end. I had a vague idea of what was going on and to be fair I didn't actually guess the answers.

 

The plot was kind of slow but picked up towards the end, and I did think the actual revelations of the mystery were quite unique and original. Writing was okay, I liked the setting. The characters didn't really do much for me. They felt a little flat personality wise. It was more a what the hell is going on and how is this going to be resolved. It was left at an interesting cliffhanger but I'm not all that sure I will be continuing with this series.

It wasn't a bad book, just not for me, I guess.


Thank you to Netgalley and Macmillan-Tor/Forge for approving my request to view the title.
