I haven't reviewed the first Amanda Feral book, _Happy Hour of the
Damned_, but if I had, I would have given it 5 stars, for the sheer
brauva of the characters, despite a bit of a meandering plot.
This book, the second in the series, gets 4 stars because while the
characterization of Amanda is still stellar, we've seen her before,
so the plot becomes more important -- and it's still picaresque and
meandering in this installment. The kraken and "shaman" incidents
are particularly blatent in this regard. I'd love to see Amanda,
um, sink her teeth into a really focused plotline next time.
