http://nhw.livejournal.com/1068930.html?style=mine#cutid2[return][return]This is the first of the Bakers' novels, and sets a standard for what is to come - too many exclamation marks, not quite enough extra background to make sense, and a less than coherent plot (though better here than on screen).

The Rani was an interesting character. Too bad they didn't do more with her.
