Calico - Allison Bruning If you only read one book this year, for Raptor Jesus' sake I hope it ain't this one. Unless of course you love reading incomprehensible tales of French ninjas, misremembered historical events, incest among the French, casual rape and abuse among the Shawnee, and trying to decipher dialogue formed from three languages melded into one throughout most of the book. There's also a paranormal aspect acting as a deus ex machina to solve all the characters' baser motivations at the end so everyone can live happily ever after. I helped beta-read this book for the author's SECOND unlucky publisher and it was still a miasma of subplots and characters so poorly thought out that they would've shamed George R. R. Martin and probably has James Fenimore Cooper spinning at 78 rpms right now.
