Best one yet! A little slow starting out, but by the end it got very good. Very intense/exciting/etc. I still have some issues with the writing style (mostly the excessive dialogue tags and adverbs, argh!) and how at the end of every book it's like "I'M THE BAD GUY AND I'M GOING TO TAKE TWENTY PAGES TO PROVE HOW CLEVER MY EVIL PLOT IS" ... but other than that, very enjoyable. I'll start the fourth one soon, but I'm intimidated by the size of the next four books. *stares at mile-high pile of remaining books* But, I will get through them. I WILL.
