Trackers Day 2: In which I actually tell you about the book

From The Publisher:
Far from home in a ravaged world, the Birthrighters struggle for survival.

Raised in a new ark beneath polar ice, delivered by whales to a blighted surface, the young men and women of the Birthright Project have pledged their lives to a risky and redemptive mission--perserving God's original creation from the ravages of the Endless Wars and human depravity.

They've roamed the earth tracking original species.They've successfully battled sorcerers, warlords, and armies of mutants. But now a twisted new enemy is on the march.An explosive old secret lurks beneath the glitter of a decadent city. And the mysterious darkness that swallowed a mountain spreads toward an innocent mill town.

Before they can prevail, the Birthrighters must confront their most difficult challenge: overcoming their individual desires that threaten to betray the group.

The adventure draws to a dramatic close in Book Two of Kathryn Mackel's imaginative and absorbing Birthright Series...a fantasy thriller with a heart of faith.

My Thoughts:
I have to admit that the main reason I like this book is for the ideas behind it. I find the story to be interesting but I'm not really all that attatched to the characters in it, and I do prefer a character driven book. Just personal preference. So I find Trackers to be enjoyable, but putdownable. I don't lay awake nights wondering what will happen to them. Which could be a good thing...
