Tonawanda News — Oh, and the reader learns that her mother is alive, too. And Fala falls in love with the rude demigod Amahté. But Amahté’s father, a high god, hates his new human girlfriend and slaps her.
Fala knocks out Amahte’s father. The father gets hurt. Osiris’ brother Set tries to kill Fala.
The reader learns the other brother Akori is having a secret love affair with a human servant. At some point Fala grows wings. The father is punished for his crimes and everyone is happy.
There’s a lot going on.
The beginning of the story feels a bit rushed, as does the ending, yet the book is 270 pages long. Everything wraps up all too certainly after so much turmoil endured by the parties involved.
The reader isn’t really left any breathing room in between acts.
Every connection to Fala’s story is deserving of its own story. “The Amulet” has more than enough drama and excitement for a series, and it would probably read better as such.
