** spoiler alert ** Cassidy faces more problems, Gray learns to be a man, Theran gets a 180 personality change from what I expected in the last book, the requisite antagonist is as equally annoying as vapid, Jaenelle is still cool, Marian is still mostly heard about offscreen, Daemonar is apparently the definition of why you don't want kids, a prophecy is made and is appropriately vague and misleading. Back to the main plot, Cassidy learns to love herself for herself! [By basically running away and drawing a line to keep out the bad stuff, but hey whatever works, nevermind the rest:] And the dogs, don't forget the dogs. Happy ending of course.

Its not a bad book, in keeping with the rest of the series, but the plot felt a bit plotting in the parts where it dealt with the bad lady's evilness that felt more like playgound bullying at times. And comparably with out being that much longer, the book covers about a year of events versus the previous book's couple weeks, so the story of rushed in other instances. Still not quite used to everyone and their dogs throwing hissyfits as a normal form of emotional expression, but otherwise, its a good crack filled fantasy read.
