The people in this book are a mismatched group. They just can't seem to get along. But even though they can't agree there comes a point where it is work together or embrace a darker future.
The villain is one evil crazy person. When he devolves his diabolical plan for the future it makes him sound like an extremely deranged individual. He doesn't seem to have any limits on what he would do to get what he wants.
There isn't much romance. I often wondered how strong their feelings were for each other. At least there is one update on Zahira's feelings for Sorin. But otherwise their relationship just seems like that of a convenient marriage in which they work together simply for the best of others.
The ending was abrupt and anti-climatic. There is a really pretty speech given but I suspect the future is going to be anything but pretty.
