Styles Kenric is something of a cartoonish villain, but Carter managed to make me hate him rather than roll my eyes at the over-the-topness of his behaviour. What he does to his wife and the Fulani slave Blade is sad and vile in the extreme, even if it is melodramatic to the point where it was hard to suspend disbelief.
The storytelling is top-notch, especially Blade's mission to New Orlean's to fetch the master's wife. Unlike Master of Blackoaks, I found the conclusion of this book to be satisfying- aren't we all suckers for (relatively) happy endings?- and made me hardly able to wait to get started on the next book in the series.
