Good book, full of great first person perspective descriptions of battles. Carter isn't the greatest writer, though. I do care about the characters, but there's some redundancy and I find Brigitte just too foolish and headstrong to like. And there was MUCH too much usage of the phrase "points of light." At one point I nearly stopped reading because of that, wanting to shout, "Find a dang thesaurus, Mister!" Carter tries to convey the feelings of the Holy Ghost--sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It IS a hard thing to write about, but sometimes it felt like he tried too hard. Still, good book and I'll finish the series and have my kids read it.
