A review of Quislings, by Poppet

I think Poppet is one of the neatest independent authors around.  I reviewed Siethe, previously.  Let me warn everyone.  Poppet doesn't write for kids nor for the faint of heart, so don't pick up her books looking for sunshine and lollipops!

As with all of Poppet's writing, the characterization here is not lacking.  She creates dark and mysterious personalities placed in extraordinary circumstances.  Setting the book in the midst of Mayan cultural ramblings and modern crises is an especially neat treat for me.  It's a rich and powerful tapestry of setting and atmosphere.

I liked this book so much, that I'm guarding what I say so I give nothing away.  Experience it for yourself.  You'll love it.
