really liked it
bookshelves: 2010
Read from November 05 to 12, 2010

I was very quickly carried away by the characters and the race-to-the-finish plotlies. Some developments I was able to predict, some not, but overall I bought in.

I like that one of the main character is more if an aging hero - his insights add a great deal to the storyline. I also appreciate the younger brash and somewhat naive characters who are a counterbalance to his worliness. I like that some of the good characters can be petty and vindictive, and that some of the questionable ones are motivated to help (in their own twisted way).

I could say more, but hate spoilers in reviews. My best recommendation is that I've bought the next three in the series, and plan to get to them soon!
