Heriot Oct. 6 2012
By friarygirl - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not as good as some of her earlier works. For example, The Tricksters and Memory, even The Changeover, are works of serious literature and should be on school reading lists. Please read them.

Heriot was entertaining, but a little clunky and hard to engage with compared with her normal ease of character definition. Still worth a read though - I got through it all, and will probably read it again some day.
