Bite is there when Doremus gets the meditative storytelling right, but when he doesn't, it's impossible to ignore the aforementioned draggy spells in material, as well as how, for that matter, there isn't all that much material to intrigue with meat through all of the dry storytelling, as this plot of limited momentum goes driven by characters of limited intrigue, limiting potential whose interpretation doesn't even give you the courtesy of consistently unique storytelling.
