** spoiler alert ** An eagerly awaited installment that pales in comparison to its predecessors. Three rich plot threads combine to form thin soup - all of them seemingly given short-shrift. There are a few illustrations scattered throughout the novel, but they only serve to highlight the many other things that could (should) have been illustrated as well. Not nearly as many people are eaten as before and the 'love interest' is cloying and annoying. Criticisms aside, if you have already invested the time in the first three books, go ahead and read this one.
