Masques - Patricia Briggs This may most likely be an unpopular opinion sincere the majority of reviewers seemed to have really enjoyed this book. I did not enjoy it as the rest have.

I do adore Patricia Briggs and the Mercy Thompson series. I also enjoy *most* sword and sorcery book's, but for some reason this book did not throw off the needed spark that would have created the fire of need in me...the need to keep turning pages, the need of having to find out what happens next, etc.

I realize that this book is a set up for the rest of this quadology (?) and needed to spend a lot of time introducing the characters talking about and explaining the world they are in...but it was for me, a boring set up. It did get better towards the end of the book, with more action, romance and adventure (sort of) but it wasn't enough for me.
