The first book with just Todd McCaffrey as the author. I already said that the previous book that included him as a co-writer was written like fanfiction. This one was even worse. It must have been him that did it. We'll never know. It was entertaining enough but not amazing writing by any stretch of the imagination. I wish this series wasn't going downhill so fast. It has always been one of my favorites until I started delving into these later books. Oh, well. I am still determined to read them all.
