2011 book 4

Isobelle Carmody's Ashling
I was vaguely disappointed with the third Obernewtyn book--not that interesting things don't happen, because they do, and I still want to know what will happen to the characters. But we know our protagonist has a destiny of some kind, yet there's never any building toward that. It just gets mentioned a lot. And to the reader, it's very obvious who her big opponent will be, but she has no idea. It's frustrating. I'm going to take a break from these, I think, and then see if the fourth one improves anything. B.
