Definitely a mythology kick this month. Loki was fan-freaking-tastic, probably the first novel I've read that deals with Norse mythology in a way that isn't just a retelling of the myths (like The Children of Odin which took forever to get through).
I enjoyed the story of the Bund but won't be purchasing/reading anymore of it simply due to being uncomfortable with the artwork. I know Mina isn't a child people but she's depicted with a child's body and that smacks of exploitation to me. It's just my opinion and I'm entitled to it; the story, like I said, was enjoyable, even interesting, but the close ups and erotic displays of nipples and childlike vaginas completely took away any fun I was having with this different re-telling of vampires.
The last two books I borrowed from the local high school. I hadn't read them before but they'd been there since I'd gone to school. Great fantasy stories, the last being my favourite as the female lead Torina goes through a rather large character arc without being a bitch at either the beginning or end, simply a person of circunstance. It reminded me how much I used to enjoy fantasy before erotica got in the way. The story was great (without pages and pages of stratgey/battle plans either) and the characters were whole.
