As a non-fantasy-reader, I've really enjoyed this series, but the mythology got the best of me in this last book. There's lots more Christianity mixed in among the animals-on-wheels, witches, talking bears, daemons, harpies, ghosts, and steampunk-ish technology, and then somehow it's all about the redeeming power of ... puppy love? The story was a lot more enjoyable when I stopped trying to understand how it all actually worked.
