1.0 out of 5 stars I really having to stop buying LKH, November 8, 2008
This book is definitely for die hard fans only. The plot has been pretty thin for the last few books, but this was really bad. Meredith and her men spend the entire book running mindlessly from one bad thing to another (sounds familiar?). Another reviewer mentioned that Meredith is turning into Anita and this is completely true. I think what is so frustrating for LKH fans is that the characters in both this series as well as the Anita Blake series are great, but her writing style has changed so drastically and we keep reading in the hopes that the series' will return to what they once were. Ah, well. If anything, I would recommend that you buy this book if you are trying to stop reading LKH once and for all and were simply waiting for one more reason. This book is a good reason.

2.0 out of 5 stars No magic left, July 21, 2007
This book does a wonderful job explaining some of the mysteries of the series. However, a lot of those explanations left me feeling let down in some way. As more revelations took place, I started to wish that they would just stop because they got so ridiculous. I stopped cheering the main characters on and turned to hope that the book would just hurry up and end. The epilogue just seemed to reinforce what a mediocre, and commercial book this ended up being. The author seemed to kill off characters just for the sake of killing them and with none of the care, attention, and feeling that they deserved. Sure the book had some memorable moments, such as the revelations about Snape and saying goodbye to the Dursley's, but overall this book seemed to have lost the magic and creativity that made the series so great.
