This book was one looong intake of breath, that never got released before the book ended. I felt like a lot of this was filler and fluff. There were wonderful highlights... don't get me wrong I always like getting together with good old friends. But it was kind of like seeing these good friends in the distance, doing a weird half wave, we've already made eye contact, but we're not close enough to hear each other speak, but we can't not see each other, so we just awkwardly smile, maybe try some miming and just when we get close enough to speak, hug and properly greet each other; the ground opens up and swallows us all and we're stuck in limbo waiting for this guy to put us back where we left off and let us properly meet this time.

Tanja This is a slog, which kind of breaks my heart... I carry a very large and bright torch for this series so I can hardly bring myself to admit that so far I'm really disappointed in this book :(
