One of the problems with series is sustaining a story arc that ramps up while also providing a solid ending to an individual book. So far this succeeds in that you are learning more and more about what is going on while also knowing there is a lot more to be revealed.
The book starts off pretty fast building up the action and also ends that way. Mostly I just love the whole group dynamic of each character as they relate to each other. A gonzo character like Siegfried in contrast to the Princess of Magical Australia. The character of Rachael is also what pulls it off. I really like how she deals with this group dynamic seeing the flaws and strengths in her group and navigating to bring out the best in them. A tension in these stories is how she works behind the scenes being instrumental, while also not usually getting credit for it. Since Rachael is a rather complex character you see struggles, insecurity, love of knowledge, healing of group dynamics, while also focusing on the final end of the threat to her world.
The scenes of her attending the Dead Man's Ball with Gaius was a wonderful interlude filled with imagery and myth. Perfect reading leading up to Halloween. This also further illustrated her character in seeing situations and identifying with and helping others.
There are also many more clues about how this world came to be and it's connections to other worlds. Especially concerning the nature of the Raven and the foes they are facing.
All the characters have distinct personalities. There is no character that exists solely to explain the universe to the reader. The character interactions are believable and superbly written.
Lamplighter doesn't waste words or time. If it's on the page, there will be a pay off eventually. The "slice of life at school" scenes are kept to a minimum and also serve to move the plot and give depth to the characters.
One wonders, though, if the author is going to start a spin-off entitled Siegfried vs. the Smoking Skunk. Seems to be a recurring theme.
I will always read L. Jagi's books though I wish so much she could get a better editor and publisher - one worthy of her talent without so many editing and printing mistakes. Sigh.
