There was no spring in this novel's step that the two previous chapters possessed. It seemed like a straight run to the finale with little in the way of twists and turns. Zack was built up convincingly towards a showdown with his father that never materialized, the nuke had no build up at all and even the Master was a let down, after having a Dracula-esque terror to him in the first book and an overbearing omnipresence in the second. Frankly he was crap in the finale. Eph too. It was lacklustre at best and felt rushed, as others have said. The first book was by far the best and its winning formula was seemingly exhausted by the end of the second book. The saddest part is everyone could tell you how Night Eternal SHOULD have ended, but nobody thought to tell Chuck or Guillermo. Waste of a good finale. Stick to the first two books and leave the ending to your imagination, that way you won't be disappointed.
