Daniel For discussion of Parts V-XII. The parts become exponentially shorter from this point forward. Did you find this made the tension and excitement more palpable?

message 2: by Kai (new) - rated it 5 stars

Kai Coates (southernbohemian) | 24 comments I finished the book today and absolutely adored it - 5 stars. One of my few criticisms is that the book could have easily finished at the end of Part 4. Parts 5-12 flesh out the details, but they are hardly as revealing as the rest of the book, which had an abundance of twists and surprises. In that matter, I felt the last 100 pages were a nice way to wind down and say goodbye to the characters. This was very much a book I was not looking forward to ending.
