Pandaemonium – Book Review
By Angela Youngman Feb 10, 2013, 15:44 GMT
Desdaemona has done a thing so so terrible that she has to run away from the consequences. Again. Where better to look for shelter than with the boy she was running from before? But trouble follows. And if it\'s not Jacey\'s parents who sent the deadly crow-men, the Twa Corbies, in chase of her, then who is it? Deep under London, among the lost and rejected of two worlds, ...more
Desdaemona a major problem - hell is on her heels. Too many people want has her dead. Why are the deadly Twa Corbies chasing her? Who has commissioned them? Soon it becomes clear that the answers lie deep in her hidden past.
The chase is on. Can she find answers before the demons catch her? The whole story is set in an urban fantasy environment, rather than magic and mystery. Written in the first person, it is not an easy read.
I did find my concentration slipping, as I tried to keep track of the various characters and the plot line. Personally, the book did not really work for me; it just did not grab my attention. There was just too much focus on her thoughts and feelings while actually doing anything.
After a while I found myself skim reading to see if anything actually happened.
