I want to know what happens next, and while the fleshing out of Rath was amazing, as well as really getting to know the creepy Duster and Carver, I shiver to know what happens next to Jay and her den.
Because I know who grows up and who dies. I know who is important later and who isn't.
And the final battle is coming. The epic moment toward which Evayne plays is slowly drawing near.
Still, this book doesn't annoy me nearly as much as "A New Spring" did. Or, at least it won't unless she dies before finishing the House War series.
That would be unendingly upsetting to me.
I have found that the next one is going to finish the Pre-badassness that is Jewel, and go on to the conclusion of the House War after that.
I'm totally looking forward to that.
