And Kirsty. I love Kirsty.

And Johnny - oh my god, he's my favorite.

This one was amazing in ways far beyond the first two - sweeter, more dangerous, more at stake, several really good a-HA moments. Hit every note perfectly. And Pterry's one of those authors where he can be writing this scene that is horribly fraught with tension and the entire world is about to collapse and he throws in just one little stupid phrase that makes you laugh, and nearly every other author who tries it knocks you out of the mood, but Pterry gets it beautifully and you go on without a second thought. It's wonderful.
