City of Bones
I pre-read this for Big and Middle. It sounded okay from the back, but it's so easy for authors of young adult novels to slip in many, many adult themes. I judged the possibility by the chiseled hardbody on the cover and chose to pre-read.
Yea, it was okay. Okay enough for the kids to read. A smidgen of moderate romance, lots of questions about parentage, but an overall pretty cool take on fantasy. Not sure I'll read the rest of them. I hate that, by the way, only reading one book of a series, so I might pick it back up when/if I get bored.
Somewhere between 3-4 stars.
