I really wanted to love this, but there were too many areas that were underdeveloped. The relationship between Naomi and Lash seemed based on looks and then on past-life soul-mate stuff, and just didn't leave me believing the romance. There were so many opportunities to make Luke positively evil, horrible, and supernatural, and yet he used guns and bombs to hurt and threaten people. The horror aspect could have been much more visceral. I was waffling between a 2 or a 3, but decided that the setting and secondary characters were so well done (I could smell those tamales!) that it deserved the 3. Finally, the ending was too rushed, and left so many threads unfinished (I guess that means a sequel). This was a wonderful idea, but just didn't live up to the potential.
