Long story short, this book was a step up from Summer Knight.
This book saw the return of Susan, Harry’s girlfriend that took off at the end of Grave Peril and has been keeping a low profile.
There is kind of an elephant in the room that sort of needs to be pointed out: the scene between Harry and Susan. Don’t wanna spoil it for anyone that hasn’t read it but those that have will know what we mean.
Wow. Was totally not expecting that. Not that it wasn’t a well written scene and didn’t make sense but it kinda came out of left field.
Other than that, it is difficult to say anything about this book that we haven’t already said about the previous ones. It is getting a little tiresome hearing everyone tell Harry that he’s about to die and that he would be better off cowering in a cave somewhere.
I actually can’t think of anything further to say. Looking at the series overall, I do want to read more but really hope the overall story picks up pretty soon.
