This book was just as good as Stoneheart, possibly even better and I can't wait for the third to be published!

WARNING _ SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T YET READ STONEHEART!

The Gunner has been taken into the service of the Walker in order to free Edie, but little does he know that the Walker has found and re-captured Edie and holds her in a terrible house filled with the spirits of dead glints. Because he has chosen the "Hard Way" (as described at the end of Stoneheart), George must fight and win three battles while also trying to free his friends from the Walker. The war between the spits and taints continues, but curiously, one gargoyle now seems to be on George's side.
This book consists mostly of fast-paced action and battle scenes and is a real page turner. More background is given on Edie and George, further investing the reader in their cause and safety. The suspenseful ending has me chomping at the bit for more.
Highly recommended.
