Fantasy / Modern / Amazons

A great take on the Amazon myth - there's a spot of mystery - dead young Amazon girls turning up on Me's doorstep - a new employee for her tattoo parlor that has secrets of his own and is turning all the heads at her office - and her daughter Harmony, who knows nothing of her Amazon heritage. Add Mel's mother and grandmother living in the house and things get complicated.

I loved the pacing and plot - a great pick off the shelves (and from a starred review at The Romantic Times).

I'm taking this from Laevina's Fantasy/SF/Horror book box; looks interesting! [I admit that the first thing I thought of when I saw the book was the TV series LA Ink, about a tattoo parlor; the woman who runs it might even be an Amazon {grin}.]

Well, I thought the basic idea was good, but I found the main characters too prone to suffer from Don't-Tell-itis - that syndrome that ensures that a mystery or suspense story will remain unsolved for most of the book, because the main characters simply refuse to divulge key information to anybody else, no matter how logical it would be to do so. True, Mel the renegade Amazon had plenty of reasons to want to avoid contact with her former tribe, but still - with all her years of experience and growing magical sensitivity you'd think she could have predicted the logical consequences of those first don't-ask-don't-tell decisions!

The central plot was an intriguing one, with generations' worth of loss, anguish, pride and resentment to deal with, and the cruelties of the Amazon way of life weren't whitewashed. Whether, in retrospect, the Amazons are happy with the way things turn out, or if they think they should have used more... permanent... methods in the past, isn't entirely clear to me {wry grin}. And this is a classic example of the way an earnest attempt to find one's roots can turn around and bite you in the - well, you get the idea!
