It was OK, not as good as some of the others in the series. We've jumped forward in time from the mid-1970's to 1991. Saberhagen came up with a nifty gimmick for this one. I felt a little too much was left as a mystery, though - maybe not described or wrapped up in detail well enough. There were several situations that were resolved, but they were mentioned as done deals without really describing them after we'd spent a lot of time working through them. Disappointing. Still, it was a good read.

Yet another switch in writing styles, this one more like Dominion. And as has happened in this series from book three on, the story drags on and on and then suddenly, as if the author has grown bored, there is a rush to the ending with little to no explanation. The reader is left with gaping plot holes and though the book is over, no true feeling of resolution.

I have one more book left in my possession to read, a return to Sherlock Holmes and Watson, and I hope it will be a better endeavor than

Read several books in this series when my older son (who was born in 1993) was in NICU immediately after birth. I read the books out loud to him, and it was fun hearing the nurses tell each other at shift change what had happened in the story :)

Anyway, I've read all the books in the series and want to go back and re-read them.
Another in the Dracula series, quite interesting and includes more about the vampires and their interactions with people.
