I struggled on to about half-way through but honestly, it was so juvenile and shambolic I could not be bothered to finish it. ( )

I really love Nalo Hopkinson's older books; Siste Mine is pretty alright, but it felt like it was written in a hurry. I liked the different feeling she gives to Toronto, transplanting Caribbean culture and fitting it into the city. I wasn't in love with the characters, the fantasy parts, or the dialogue. Hopkinson's previous books have had such carefully chosen dialogue, this doesn't hold up by comparison. But I'm still thankful she is writing, because she's one of the few people that still writes fantasy rather than publishes a vampire-themed madlib.

I really wasn't comfortable with the incest in this book, even though it made total sense world-building wise. The other 99 percent of the book was both wonderful and totally unputdownable. ( )

A totally original modern fantasy with a unique, exotic perspective. The protagonist Makeda, a twenty-three-year-old woman, was born to a family of demigods, but she doesn’t have magic of her own. Her twin sister Abby has a double share, in addition to being gifted by an unearthly musical talent. While Abby creates beautiful music and earns money for the family by performing, Makeda is trying to make sense of her directionless life.
As the action unfolds, she realizes that she has been caught from birth in the divine power struggle of her ‘celestial’ kin. They used her body as a vessel for their needs, mutilated her mind and her magic, and left her a worthless addendum to her gifted sister, a ‘donkey’ carrying someone else’s magic.
Makeda’s abiding love for her sister, mixed with her jealousy towards Abby and her anger at her divine relations’ betrayals and lies, makes for a bitter brew, totally believable under the circumstances, but Makeda is trying to break out of the vicious circle of her conflicting emotions. She is trying to take control of her life. If only her godly cousins would set her free, stop ordering her around and interfering in her every move. She might even discover her own magic at last.
Makeda is much more accepting of her twisted reality than I would have been in her place. As I read this novel, I came to hate, I mean REALLY, hate, her two-faced divinity of an uncle who pretends to care about his niece but relentlessly pursues his own agenda, regardless of its impact on Makeda’s health or happiness. "Gods don't care" is the clear message of this book.
The novel is very powerful, with every character sharply defined, and the black people’s slang makes all the characters ethnically unmistakable. I am not sure I like this novel; it’s too intense for me, but I’ll definitely remember it for a long time. ( )
