Bound

Bound - Lee Taylor A bit contrived at times, but not a bad story. I mean, who is called "Ursine" and how do people not use this name to guess at what his "dark passenger" is?

But the reason for the low score is the poor use of English.
I got really annoyed with all the uses of "could of" etc for "could've".
The protagonist ties his jacket around his "waste" - either very messy or the author meant "waist".
Then we have the emergency services coming to "distinguish" the fire.
I could go on...

I hope this was a typed text with a bad OCR treatment.

If the next book in the series is available "at the right price" I may find out what happens to the team of misfits. If not, I'm not going to bother. Sorry.
