Stewart Not Your Monkey

The Errant Flock, by Jana Petken

The Errant Flock, by Jana Petken, is a “TBR” (To Be Read) choice for my 2017 Reading Challenge.

Errant Flock

This book has lots of great reviews, so maybe I'm just not the right market. I gave it over 50% before chalking it up as DNF, but I just wasn't as invested in it as I should have been by then. The only parts I really liked, and which kept me reading, were the portions from David's POV. Those piqued my interest but not enough to stick with the whole book.

I did feel uncomfortable with the large amount of anti-Semitism, even if it was historically accurate. It's not a fun read. I usually like dark, but by the time we finally saw the Inquisition come to town, I realized that I just hated the thought of watching further innocents be tortured and killed. There was nothing to keep pulling me forward. Also far too many typos, which should have easily been caught.
