Why this book?:

I had purchased the second book and didn't want to read out of order.


This had a LOT of description about Tara's tarot cards, their interpretations, etc.  I was torn.  I could see how this pertained to the story.  After all, this is a huge factor in many of Tara's decisions.  On the other hand, I didn't need that much detail when I don't plan on learning them myself.  So I found myself skimming.  I don't like skimming because I miss details that are important.  Plus it makes me question whether I'm "reading" when I skim.

Anyway - this brings me back to torn.  The overall story was was interesting.  Not especially realistic on multiple levels, but is that really necessary?  And I liked Tara (main character), Harry (government liaison and partner), Cassie (missing dude's daughter), and Martin (Harry's father-figure).

And of course I read the second book after this one.
