This is my favorite book in the series so far. I still get a kick out of Atticus and Oberon's mental connection (especially the bacon lattes - what dog wouldn't want one of those!). And I also really enjoyed Atticus taking Jesus out for beer and whiskey (what would I do!) But what I enjoyed most was that this book went to a darker place. Do you keep your word to your friends (and apparently a druid's word is his bond) even if it means the end of you and possibly the end of the world? I did not enjoy the ending as much - while it's not a cliffhanger per se, I felt that too much was left unresolved, but obviously I will want to read the next book to find out how it does get resolved.
