** spoiler alert ** In the hands of a better author, or this author with an editor who I didn't fear was being strangled if they even exist, the fact that Jean-Claude essentially outs himself as the villain the rest of the country feared him to already be would have been amazing. Or the central focus of the book.

Instead it's thrown in the middle and kind of a throwaway moment, if the three main characters plotting to "metaphysically rape" (their words, not mine) any unwilling Masters of other cities could ever really, truly be a throwaway moment. It's sandwiched between a truly bizarre dance recital, Asher being justifiably pissed when he thinks that every other guy in JC's life (as well as Anita's) is having sex with whomever they please, and a whole lot of weretiger sex and werelion drama.

It's said badly, repeatedly, throughout the novel, but I doubt that any of the "heroes" in this story truly realize that committing monstrous acts in the name of something good is still monstrous.
