    Almost done Just a few pages So I decided I would just cut to the chase and review it now, because I ll be done this weekend, and I don t want to have to think about it I highly doubt the last few chapters can save this one.The prose is mostly serviceable Until you hit an action scene then it s awful and awkward Or, if you hit a scene that is supposed to ramp up suspense and terrify you Then it s just hokey and over wrought There is nothing notable in her prose It isn t lovely or particularly compelling.Now, I was interested in the setting, New Mexico, since I have never been there and would quite like to go someday I was also interested in the Native American mythology motif, and the racial tension in the Southwest But since the writing is so mediocre, there is no power in any of it It is merely awkward.This novel follows certain horror novel tropes of the 70s and 80s, and I think those tropes suck I ve read a number of novels from that period, and I rarely, if ever, like them They are weak stories with badly drawn characters and stupid twists.I also really hate the two lead women in this They both bang Chato fairly quickly, and we re supposed to believe through Ptacek s lack of compelling buildup, ...

    Disappointed I really enjoyed Gila and Chato s character so I wanted to read Shadow eyes looked interesting so I gave it a try In this book, all Chato did was whine Sunny was a interesting character than he was The premise was good but execution fell flat Very disappointed.
