This is a reread...which is, in itself, a statement about how much I love this book, in particular and the series as a whole, that I find it worth spending the time to reread. Recently, the beginning books of the Benjamin January series were converted to ebooks and I wasted no time in getting them for my Nook.

I just finished the most recent book in the series, Shirt on His Back, at the same time I was reading this first volume and it's interesting to see how much the characters are still so consistently vivid, even before their relationships had developed as far as they have in the later books. Hambly still tells a crackling good mystery and even knowing where it was going, I still enjoyed the journey very much.
