How was it? This is my first exposure to Lanyon, and I find myself in that weird place where Mainly by Moonlight is not a book that I will remember fondly or am likely to revisit, but might read the sequel of. In other words this book is average, passable is the word that comes to mind, but it has something.
Some kind of “it” factor, or maybe I’m bewitched? Because I don’t see a lot of things that I like in this book. The world building is confusing at times, Cosmo behaves in ways I don’t understand or can’t make sense of. He’s sort of likable – and that’s about it. As for John…I don’t know what to say, we’s suppose to feel bad for him at some point but I didn’t. He comes across as controlling and a bit selfish. I can’t event say that there’s a love connection between the two because like everything it’s a little foggy.
However, I’m impressed with Lanyon’s ability to give me hope through this muddy mess. Giving me the impression that it will all make sense and be worth it at the end. I might be too optimistic but I think enough seeds have been planted for the making of an attention grabbing, exciting overall story arc.
My best guess is that Mainly by Moonlight is like a bad pilot of an otherwise great TV-Show, only time will tell.
