What I like about this series: The smart-ass Tony-Stark-esque hero, Nate Temple. All his friends. The relationships among them. The very broad range of fantasy characters. The creative ways Nate evades certain death.

What I dislike about this series: Not enough time for Nate to learn his powers, catch his breath, or develop relationships between the action. It's 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds, every book.

This book is the worst offender yet. Not only does it jump the gun on the action sequences, but there are MULTIPLE times that the bad guy could, should, and would have ended Nate before the final showdown. Bad guys aren't idiots. Especially 400+ year old bad guys. They don't just stand around yammering with their enemy in the middle of a battle. They cut the head off and move on to the next target. It would have been much more interesting if the build up had been slower and at least one entire showdown eliminated. When the reader has trouble with a fantasy plot line being believable, the author has gone too far, too fast. I have a feeling all the books are going to be this way, which is annoying, because the characters are very interesting.

In this one, Nate loses nearly everything and gains a ton of power while eliminating a very big threat to the supernatural community (which he accidentally pissed off and then set free, but that's a prequel short story.)
