Review: Undertow

Undertow Undertow by Michael Buckley
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I almost didn't finish this book, and now that I have, I rather wish I hadn't wasted my time with it. It is totally formulaic and forgettable. It strikes me as a young-adult cross between Swamp Thing and The Creature From the Black Lagoon, with a bit of forbidden Romeo and Juliet love thrown in for good measure. This is not a good thing, mind you. It also doesn't help that the main character becomes completely unrealistic at the end, Saving the Day over thousands of trained warriors because she is a Special Snowflake (or "Wild Thing," as she puts it). I'm not going to describe the plot because bah. I will avoid the sequel like the plague, and so should you.
