I'm a huge fan of KA. That said...this book left me wanting just a bit more. The resolution with the bad guy felt super incomplete. The epilogue fast forwards quite a bit, and we still don't know how things ultimately play out. This may be due to this particular baddy having an ongoing presence in the Unfinished Heroes series. If so, I'll look forward to him eventually being hacked into tiny pieces. Yes, he incites that level of bloodthirsty vengeance after 3 books.
