Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison

Now don't get me wrong, this book had its moments and it was the moments that got me to read the whole book.  I love the premise but I just felt that I was reading a bad teen love story.  Wait a minute, I did and it was.  The basis for the story is a revamp of Tristan and Isolde love story only now they are in high school.  It is like Buffy the Vampire Slayer (in this case Isolde is a witch) meets Conan the Barbarian (Tristan is the hero from the magical realm).  Other books in this genre do very well.  I did not enjoy this one.  At times it flowed well and was quite believable and others.......well I will just not say anything.  If you have nothing but time on your hands perhaps read this otherwise read something else!
