I was disappointed in this book. Having read I Am Legend, I expected something of similar quality. Instead, I felt like I was reading something by a totally different author. The characters were one-dimensional. I found it difficult to identify with the protagonist; he frequently referenced his father and his dislike of him, but very little background information was given and little attempt was made to resolve the problem. It seemed to be a big part of his life, but we never learn much about it. The book in general read like a teenage boy's fantasy; two women fighting over him while he has lots of sex with both of them. I'm also not impressed with the negative portrayal of Wicca - it seemed intentional. I found it difficult to read through to the end.
