The ecological comments are very heavy handed and simplistic which naturally ticked me off no end.
There is also very little depth in the characterisation and a disturbing amount of graphic violence. Alarmingly similar to an action movie or a video game.
The writing is of the usually mediocre style deemed acceptable for YA (why, I can’t imagine) easy to read but more fashionable than elegant.
On the plus side the fairy world is interesting and fun and I imagine is fertile ground for the other books in the series, fortunately I won’t be reading them.
