Suddenly the novels have become the Hali story, which is sad because she's my least favorite of the characters. The plot has become contrived and just seems to be coasting instead of progressing. Perhaps I've had my hopes up because I've waited so long, but as stories go, if I hadn't waited so long to continue I might not be waiting to buy the next one.
