So the other day I finished up Silent Hall by N S Dolkart. It's...it's not bad, but it spends a lot of time in the set-up and then leaves everything for the next book. Also, it's the "band of chosen young people save the world" kind of book and that's not a huge draw for me.
Again the writing clips along and it's not bad, but it was mostly filler while waiting for the release of a book I wanted to read more. So...I guess it fulfilled its mission?
