Through the Ever Night

Through the Ever Night - I'm still on board with this series, but I've resigned myself to just accept the fact that Rossi may be a very limited writer when it comes to her capability of writing cohesive and thorough plot, story development, and action. She makes gutsy decisions that would--or rather should--give her story heart and plenty of soul to anchor it solidly as YA-lit that has more depth than the generic formulas so prevalent in the fantasy genre. But sadly, her inability to execute these exciting and ballsy ideas and developments left too much to be desired for it to really make this story substantial. That's exactly it, the writing was insubstantial. It's a series of pseudo-vignettes scratching the surface of so many GREAT things! A spark that fizzled out just when it was on the cusp of igniting into a massive fire. More on this later i.e., full review to come.
