I ll try to be fair here this is a YA book and it comes in telling us it s going to play with historical and mythological figuresand play it does I found the book annoying and wonder at the damage we re doing to our youths and their knowledge of mythology what we can learn from mythology from the archetypal characters thoughts and ideas they contain Okay part of rant over There are different types of YA books Some are yA while others are Ya This is in style and execution of a Ya book with emphasis on the Young rather than the adult With it s repetitive story telling asking something and then farther on asking it again and again especially by the boy was a sort of constant Then however along with the juvenile storytelling you get attempts at semi adult content that doesn t really workview spoilerWhat annoyed me so much Well I happen to have a special feeling for the C Chulainn legend I m not sure how good it is for youths to learnbe told that Sc thach is a vampire I know vampires are ubiuitous now but a mythical Celtic hero trainer of C Chulainn making her a teenage vampire I shudder even now Shall I go on The kids are annoying mom and dad are archeologists believe me I know this becauseas noted before repetition they just kept telling us over and over The kids the twins apparently know uite a bit about this subject they retained it seems everything ever uttered about it along with a few other subjects but apparently not much else Well of course somehow occasionally one of them especially the young lady seems to show odd flashes of almost encyclopedic knowledge of some things We are told again over and over about the electronic devices they depend on especially the young man They apparently learned everything they know from movies video games and maybe their downloaded music Maybe had they bothered to download a couple of books These two drove me crazy they couldn t find electrical outlets in the world tree and it flummoxed them okay hide spoiler
