minor spoilers.

Let me say first that I very much enjoyed the first two books of this series. This book I almost couldn't stand. I don't think she could have found a more annoying and tiresome hero in Salvator, I didn't buy the love story that just suddenly happened between Kamala (when she finally showed up) and Colivar. About half way through the book there us a "big reveal" about the magisters that she about beats to death before hand and its something that if you hadn't already guessed by that point you're just not paying attention.

I'm not going to keep going on about it but suffice to say the end isn't really worth it. Very sorry to say it but this book turned me off to reading any of her future books.

I'm finding it especially annoying how 'the beast within' the magisters is constantly being referenced suddenly. I imagine they are soul eaters or else part soul eater and this is supposed to be a big reveal but it's not working for me."
