The Amulet - Michael McDowell, Poppy Z Brite

The plot is becoming a little repetitive now. Still good, but not as gripping as at the start. 


By the way, McDowell also plays with the reader in this one - one of the main characters keeps changing the story about how her husband died. It is quite funny.


Body Count: 11

Maimed: 1
