Okay, so I feel awful saying this, given how much I love DWJ, but I have sort of mixed feelings on this one, stemming from two things. One is pure personal preference: I tend to enjoy her more adult books (Dalemark, Deep Secret) a little more at this point. The other is an actual problem: the end. Plumping down a major plot point with almost no reaction from any of the characters just…didn’t work. And the plot point itself was problematic because we’re supposed to like Andrew’s uncle, but all of a sudden he’s Aidan’s father and somehow it’s not his fault at all? WHAT?
