Once again, Raine and her companions face almost certain doom as a group of goblins tries to steal the all-powerful evil rock Raine has been magically bonded to. I'm starting to think the poor woman needs a vacation.

I loved the new Benares relative we met. It was fantastic to see someone make an impact in a way that didn't need swords or magic. I'm still iffy on the other new character from Raine's past. The series already has one foxy bad-boy with a soft spot for the heroine (one who didn't show up quite often enough for my taste), so I'm not sure if Mr. Assassin Ex-Boyfriend will be able to win me over.

There are times when I wish that the pacing of these books was just a tiny bit less hectic. Raine got a few nice breaks with Mychael, but their chemistry fell a bit flat for me this time.
