Sea of Tears

Sea of Tears - Nani Power The book had promise, but I couldn't get past a few things...

Is Nani Power related to Josh Groban or get a cut of his royalties? Seriously - we don't need to hear about his music playing in the background over and over.

Many of the characteristics and thoughts of her characters - Kouri and Jedra in particular - seem uncomfortably stereotypical.

The switching back and forth between stories is fine, but the last two stories (and Bostitch's in particular) seem like they were thrown in as an afterthought. There didn't seem to be much connection to the larger story, and they felt as if they were what remained from a very brutal edit or were added because the novel was considered too short without them.
