The book was a very good addition to the series. The thing is, after reading so many, similar stories, you start hoping for something a little different. Thus the reason for a three star review. Everything about the book was very good, especially the action, battles, and humor. I guess what's missing, is a little more character development and interaction. Give us more, say three to five pages, of character development, every time a new main character enters. And an equal amount of individual character interaction. Add in some unknowns, keep us guessing, a few twists, and an ending no one expected. Something to keep us with a smile, a laugh, and a longing for more.
