it was amazing

Now that's what I'm talking about.

After the disappointment of Fool Moon, this was more than just a breath of fresh air. If Storm Front and Fool Moon were the act of putting yourself into and waiting inside a cannon, respectively, Grave Peril was like being ejected from the cannon and seeing just how damn big the world really is, right before crashing to the ground just as it gets interesting.

It opens up the worldbuilding to a great but not overwhelming degree. It introduces a swathe of new characters, some of whom I really hope are featured more in later novels (looking at you, Michael and Thomas). The plot is tight and engaging, the prose crafted in a much smoother and more accessible way.

Simply put, Grave Peril f***ing rocked.
