liked it

As I've said for past books, reading this book is like watching a soap opera. You don't really get much out of it, but it's nearly impossible to put down.

This particular book features significantly more drastic character transitions than the first two books and that really left a bad taste in my mouth. It's safe to say it's my least favorite so far.

I will pick up book 4 at some point, but I'm not sure when.

Julie I certainly needed a break when I finished it. A lot happened and a lot of people died--a lot of surprises. However, I will be picking up the fourth pretty soon now (just one or two books down in the pile from where I am now...)
