I'm wondering if this series is going to start warming up from this point. I really enjoyed how this volume was so cohesive. Only one chapter seemed to stray from the central storyline, and it didn't stray that far. This volume told the story of Dream fixing a wrong that was presented in the beginning of volume two, which lead to the end of Hell. The episode which strayed from the direct action explored an example of what happened on Earth when the mortal souls returned. That was an aspect of the story that I wanted to know about, so I didn't mind that it didn't further the plot with Dream. Overall, I felt this volume was the less formulaic than one and two, but not a collection of unrelated stories like three. It pulled on many of the elements presented in the stories up to this point, especially characters, while it also built upon some of the larger story elements, such as Dreams family. I'm still left with some questions, especailly who is this lost brother, but also what is going on with the baby born in the dreaming. To me, wanting these types of questions answered is what keeps you reading a long series.
