" Mixed feelings about this book. Wallace does a good job differentiating the novel community from mainstream Mormonism, which I was concerned about. I like the characters, though they feel a bit one-dimensional -- maybe they'll be developed more through the series. I liked the plot, but the pacing was a little off, and I wish the reader weren't omniscient -- leave a mystery for us to solve. I do like that Wallace set himself up for the sequel, but the story was still resolved, so I didn't feel cheated. "
