Review: The Border Book

User Review  - Al - Goodreads

The combination of fantasy elements, cultural myths and immigration makes for an interesting read. However the story seems to lose the streamlined simplicity that makes the beginning so compelling and readable, and it is ultimately a forgettable book. Read full review

Review: The Border Book

User Review  - Hilary - Goodreads

A Latino-based fantasy that lost points with me by having an ex-IRA man as a sympathetic character. It brought home the difference between middle-class American/European expectations and third world ones, but was mostly muddled in its fantasy aspects, and without a particularly exciting plot.
