The Borderkind - Christopher Golden I enjoyed the second installment, but something about the pacing just doesn't sit right with me. I think because we are dealing with fractured viewpoints, in the quests of Oliver, the Borderkind, and Julianna/Halliwell, and the experiences of Collete and Halliwell's daughter, Sara. Oliver and the Borderkind seems to lurch from fight to fight, while Julianna/Halliwell struggle with being behind the Veil and the remaining two women just try and cope. Which leads me to another difficulty I had with the books; the overall treatment and role of women.
