There are a smattering of great characters in this book. Sadly Lucas and Bianca don't make the bar. It took me too long to care what would happen to them. I was fairly happy resigning them to hopelessly separated and felt they should just accept it. They bugged me with all the downer emotions. Vic and Ranulf are the top characters on my list. Very funny pair! After that follows Patrice and Balthazar on my list.
Several interesting deep sub-stories are revealed in this book. The worst part is that the story is slow to build and doesn't demand your attention.
I wish they hadn't brought up the future of their relationship at the end. It brought reality crashing down around the book, sort of soured a beautiful moment with sadness even if they were attempting to be all positive about it. The ending felt like one of those twisted logic problems. The harder I tried to follow the logic the more confused I became. I decided to just accept it works and move on.
I am a bit curious about what will happen with Balthezar. Perhaps I will try to read Balthezar and see what it is about.
