I was disappointed in this addition to the Raine Benares series. Pretty much every main character kept making ridiculously stupid decisions. Raine in particular falls into a too stupid to live category which is one of my pet peeves. It feels as if despite everything that has happened to her she is not learning anything nor is she showing any character development. Two new characters were introduced but didn't add anything to the story line that existing characters couldn't have accomplished. Overall I would still recommend this series but if the next book isn't an improvement I don't think I will continue.
