Poorly written, terrible plot
A few pages into this I was just about convinced it was a part of a series because the characters had so many confusing conversations concerning previous events, relationships and customs that weren't properly explained. However, there isn't much indicating that's the case which leads me to believe that this may just have been badly written. The explanations finally came but far later than they should have, throwing off pacing and plot. <BR/><BR/>The fires that occur in the beginning of the story and the reasons for the Dark Angels being there is glossed over and never properly detailed. The actions and reasoning of the villains is also never fully explained. The events of the fire lead to Joe and Sid meeting again but the reason for continuing to be in each other's presence is so highly contrived. Joe is assigned to help Sid remember a past event (also never explained) simply by hanging around her, the fact that he never truly accomplishes this is ignored, quite possibly because it never made much sense in the first place. <BR/><BR/>In the middle, the story detours into the romance of two other characters. While they did provide the answers to some of the mysteries I couldn't help but wonder if I was still reading the same book. A whole new plot emerges in the middle and becomes the driving force, and Sid and Joe become fairly secondary. Worse yet, this subplot of a WWII romantic rescue does not fit into the rest of the plot at all. It felt like a poor attempt to fit two different stories together.
