A bit slow to start but the last couple of chapters make up for it. Funny, fast, interesting. Joanne is flawed, strong, complex, not that great with people and socially, which creates interesting, sometimes silly interactions.
Morrison - I'm still not a fan of. I think he is the flatest of the characters, the least interesting (Billy, Melinda, Coyote are still great). His change in this book was genius ;) Worked better than his usual self - growling, scowling, only now it was funnier ;)
Over all it was a very good book, though for someone who forgot the previous books a lot of the backstory and magic explanations to refresh. The only trouble I had was with visualizations of the dances.
I think there was more humor than in the previous books, or perhaps it just worked for me in this one - took me by surprise, I remembered this series as more serious than not, but there were moments that I laughed out loud. So over all 4.5.
