Huntress by Malinda Lo

I read Ash a very long time ago and adored it so I expected to love Huntress. I didn't.

The characters were very one dimensional, there was no growth and the resolution didn't resolve anything. The quest was finished but then the personal issues that characters had remained. I found both Kaede and Taisin unlikeable and quite honestly forgettable.

Similarly the plot was easy to guess, it was formulaic - start a journey, problem occurs, solve problem, another journey starts and so on.

Admittedly, I'm behind on my reviews but even after I'd finished the book I immediately began forgetting things. The only redeemable quality was the Fairy Queen. I really liked her.

This one wasn't for me.
