Sadly, this book marked the point in the series where the plot started getting really good. I'd hoped this would happen, since the first two were a bit weak in that regard. It's sad because it's at the same time when the author amped the eroticism way up. I don't read books to get my jollies, so I guess this is the last installment for me. I wish other readers who don't mind the change the best of fun.
