Definitely some humorous parts, almost silly. I'm not a silly hater, so I didn't have a problem with that. I loved Josh Toby, but found Jamine lacking for my taste. My real problem with the book was how the character's were written. It was clear the author was going for character complexity but the complexity was almost cartoonish in it's presentation. The whole gypsy angle was so sporadic. I couldn't decided if it was important to the story or was unimportant and could have done without. If I could give half stars I would rate this book 2.5.
