I Love this series, and really enjoyed this book. Although I must admit it was not one of my favourites in the series. It lost momentum a little somewhere in the middle (only a very little) But the beginning and end more then made up for it. My main reason for writing a review at this point is to warn anyone who is about to pick up this book that it is a series and at this point if you haven’t read at least a few of the previous books you are going to be at a serious disadvantage. This is one of those series that you don't necessarily have to, but its well worth your while starting at the beginning and savouring each consecutive book. I have, and have enjoyed every moment of it!
