I liked this better than Wicked Lovely. By quite a bit, actually. These characters had a lot more depth and dimension than those in this book’s predecessor—including Aislinn, who’s only a fringe player this time around. Plus, it was just plain entertaining: a mashup of an Issue Novel (a bit heavy-handed on this front, but isn’t that the nature of the beast? And at least the message was a good one.) and a fantasy novel. While I think this is the end of the road for me with respect to this series, I’m glad I picked this up.

One quibble: I realize we’re inhabiting a pantheistic universe here, but good God (note the singular), if I had to read one more “oh my Gods” or “Gods no,” I think I would have gotten up to some very blasphemous things indeed. It’s jarring to the eye and way too, well, airy-faery, to be suffered gladly.
