I can never do reviews as well as others, and I hate copying what others say, but there is definitely some consistency out there with the reviews. I didn't enjoy the first half of the book as much as the last half. And I didn't enjoy either half as much as the last 10% of Pale Demon. I love visiting this world, but we've been down this road before - Rachel goes into everything she does without a real plan. Really, why would anyone hire her for anything! She's loyal and doesn't like to kill people, but she's also pretty incompetent, especially when cut off from her magic like she is during the first half of the book. And while I have never cared for her love life (except I did like Kisten) nothing seems to be moving forward here. And I'm just venting here, but frankly I sometimes wonder what anyone sees in her!
