Adventure, narrow escapes, angst, UST, betrayal, and plot twists ensue. Alas, I read this almost two months ago, and of course I have forgotten everything.
Most of what I can recall is that I was a bit disappointed that there aren't more POC showing up in the Dirk & Steele series. I think there's about the same number throughout the series, since there aren't any intra-POC relationships AFAIK, and while I don't read the gargoyles and mermaids and shapeshifters and etc. as white, I am not sure if I should be reading them as POC either.
I'm never sure if I'm disappointed in the direction D&S is going or not. On the one hand, I love that the universe continues to expand and that we're not just limited to the usual sequel bait. On the other hand, I actually liked some of the D&S characters and have been waiting for their books for a while (EDDIE!). So... YMMV? I do wish the mythology were a bit more coherent, but then again, the everything-and-the-kitchen approach is also part of the series' charm.
Not one of the best D&S books for me, though I liked getting more of a look into the Consortium and the enemies of D&S, but not one of the worst either.
