I don't know why I read these things. I suppose they're fun, but this one much less so than the earlier ones in this series that I've read, mostly because it was WAY TOO LONG. I almost gave up a couple hundred pages in, but there were enough threads brewing that I thought it might be worth getting all the way through.
This one was WAY too predictable, way too slow-paced, lacking in interesting character development, and (I hope) finally enough to make me stop reading this series. Though who knows, maybe I'll look around for some other installments that have the fast pace and good, real people of some of the other books I've enjoyed more than this one.
