I gave this rating as five as i have been waiting for this book to go cheap for a good while.
I just love the way all the characters in this book are brought together because of the love and care for the little sage Wynn, and how Shade and Chap meet too. there is nothing to dislike the authors have written everything as always great. i love all the characters in this saga even the baddies they are in the league of their own - like wow ancient enemies with super powers and they cannot be killed. The noble dead saga have elves, humans, dwarfs vampires, wraiths, royals kings and queens and royal sea creatures add into this the war of thousands of years which no one remembers that who won or lost. Those who do know refuse to acknowledge that ever happen.
i would recommend that anyone who loves vampires magic and fantasies to read this saga from the first book Dhamphir. Excellent read every book, each book leaves you wanting to read the next as soon as possible.
I waited over 6 months for this to come out in softback and it was well worth the wait. Just cant put it down no matter what time in the morning it is. Superbly written as usual with lots of plot twists and even though you can see it all going to hell in a hand basket you just cant wait to see how it goes down and everyone gets through it.
The only bad point is I now probably have another year before the next one comes out in softback :(
