I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this one. The world building is good; Portlandtown was described in detail and was an interesting (if wet) location. Character development is also good; I loved the Wyldes (Kate, Joseph, and the twins) and the "Big Bads" truly were big and bad. But . . . it seemed like the story took a while to get started, and I just couldn't get really invested in it until the last third of the book. But that last third came on like gangbusters! If DeBorde writes more about the Wyldes, I'll probably check it out - just to see what happens.
