I began reading the series a year and a half ago or something awful like that. I really enjoyed it for a long time till I got bogged down near the middle of this book. I think I just fell out of reading. When I finally picked it back up off my shelf I fell back in love with it. I have to think that my life just cut out reading and that it wasn't anything to do with the book.

As far as the series goes, I'd say it was so-so at best.
I'd give this book 4 of 5 stars, but the series overall 3.5 of 5 stars
