This was a considerably shorter book than some of the others in the series, but I loved it because it provided so much insight into many of the characters. We got to see that not everything is either good or evil, but that so many of the characters are a mix of the two. I couldn't help but feel bad for Stryker, especially when you realize how much he has lost. The revelations about Nick made me like his character even more, despite him being all pissy at Acheron. And for some strange reason, I have this belief that one of the stories will be centered around Savitar and Appolymi... I got the impression from this book that they are going to end up with eachother. hmm, that's interesting. But yeah, I really enjoyed this book and I can't wait for more to come out!
