STORK

Image of Stork (Stork Trilogy)
Author(s): 

Slow and predictable, with flat characters. Katla is shallow, her voice not strong enough to carry this reviewer through. Though the intricate folklore will entertain toward the end, a lot of the book was pointless build-up. Still, this story may satisfy diehard paranormal fans.

The last thing fashion- forward California native Katla expects to find when she moves to middle-of-nowhere Minnesota is that she’s a member of an ancient Icelandic Stork society. But when she meets Jack, editor-in-chief and quarterback, she is drawn to him, despite the fact they argue constantly, and it seems like he has a dark secret for only Katla to hear.
