I thought Jessica as a character was flat.

She didn't change in the series like some of the other characters did.

I also didn't like that half the characters that were mentioned as racial minorities in the book were also the antagonists.

So I'm not the only one who didn't like Jessica's character :P

I don't remember the racial minorities part. What characters were they?

Costanzas' family, The Blackfoots

The way they were portrayed in the first two books made them seem flat out evil.

They were jerks, yeah. I wouldn't go as far as to say evil. Eh, I don't see a problem with them being mentioned as Native, and I think it was a part of the plot at some point. It's been awhile since I read the books
