I have fond, fond memories of a Bordertown anthology from my adolescence and this sort of snuck in under that cover. I especially liked the interactions between Ron and the people he meets.
I’d read a couple of books in this series before: Emma Bull’s Finderwhich I read many years ago and vaguely remember liking well enough, and the anthology Borderlandwhich I read last year and was kind of underwhelmed by. This one, I think, lies somewhere in between. It’s decently written, and Shetterly makes the setting feel real enough. But the story — which follows a teenage runaway who comes to Bordertown looking for his brother and falls in with a group of bohemian misfits — really wasn’t more than mildly interesting to me.
I could say pretty much the same thing about the characters, too. It’s a quick read, and not an unpleasant one, but also not very memorable. And now that I’m finished with what was already sitting on my To-Read Pile, I think I’m ready to call myself done with this series.
