the book, as a whole, was actually pretty good and i liked it a lot more than the 2 (reallyl 2.5) stars indicate but i'm only giving it 2.5 stars because the end was UTTER CRAP. didn't believe it for a second.

other than that, the story, characters, and action (specifically descriptions of martial fighting and philosophy) were provocative and interesting. the ending, and i mean the very end (the last paragraph or two)---> TOTAL POOP.

I liked this one better than the first. The author filled out the characters more. However, the main character whined the whole time about his girlfriend. *spolier alert* when she dumped him. He also seem like a stalker toward her. also, as the other reviews have stated on Amazon the ending was terriable and we learn that he is realy crazy.

So the book picks up where cutting season left off. Lots of character development, lots of flash backs to previous lives, a little less action than before but still great nonetheless.
My only problem is the ending. Read the book and see for yourself. I would have gave the book 5 stars if the ending had been to my taste.

A fairly enjoyable read with an unsatisfying resolution.
