Even though it had been a few years since I read book two and struggled a little trying to remember specifics of what had already occurred, I enjoyed this book until the last four pages. The ending felt like it was just slapped on to rush the end of the book. Little was explained to tie up the story; a very abrupt ending. It was more like someone forgot to finish writing and just decided to publish the outline they drafted out. I was sad to see it that way. I love Anne McCaffrey's books and this is the first of the many, many I have read by her that I felt wasn't her best work.

Before the ending however, she does well with Ariin and Khorii's relationship and it grows at a believable pace. Khindii/Grimalkin was a wonderful asset to the solving of the mystery. There were a few other moments that could have done with a little more developing story wise that felt abrupt (like the sudden curing of Acorna and Aari), but overall this story is a nice addition to the Acorna series.
