Boneshaker - Cherie Priest Despite the fact that I had read another book by Cherie Priest and didn't find it all that great, I had read good things about Boneshaker and hoped to really like it. That feeling never came, though. While the plot is good, the characters feel flat and it's hard to really care all that much about any of them. I actually ended up sort of just skimming through the last half of the book.
