I got through this one really quickly. One of my friends told me the later books introduced some moral ambiguity (or perhaps morel ambiguity hehe?) and I think this is where that kinda starts. I'm actually not sure who is on which side anymore. The earlier books portrayed the conflict as a battle between good and evil, but despite the very real character of the narrator most of the action and knowledge is shown from the children's perspective so it seems as though their misinformation could be the readers as well. I don't know exactly. I do want to know exactly what is going on---the book ended on a hopeful note but that just can't be right...
