It's nice to watch Connor coming to terms with the fact that life goes on even if he isn't a powerful druid anymore. He is working on his character instead of throwing a huge pity party, he really needed that huge smack in the ego and I can't wait to see what is in store for him in the next coming books. It's nice to see growth in the character and more of Meryl because she rocks. I know craptastic review I could do better but I'm lazy. This is a great urban fantasy/paranormal series, I recommend anyone who loves urban fantasy and mysteries (think Dresden file fans) this is a great book with a less fluffy feel.
