Daughter from the Dark: A Novel

We rated this book:


For a book about supernatural beings, a protective teddy bear that can kill, and music, this book moves at a fairly lethargic pace. DJ Aspirin is walking home late from another one of his famous parties when he rescues ten-year-old Alyona from some ruffians on the street. Next thing he knows, she is getting into his life, claiming to be his daughter, while she is on the search to play the perfect tune to find her brother who came down to our world hundreds of years ago and has never come back. While at the same time different supernatural forces are trying to stop her from playing the tune.

It takes a long time for really anything to happen, and nothing really much happens besides a lot of arguments until the final part of the book. There are a lot of self-musings, which often get repeated, and a teddy bear that is not a teddy bear, though after the first few attacks he calms down. The idea that an angel coming to Earth to find her brother and must play a tune might be interesting, I just wish it was not told this way as it is a bit slow and ponderous.
