While some of our favorite characters make guest appearances, they stay pretty much on the sidelines this time around. I would have liked to see a little more of D’Agosta, but after almost dying in the last book, I guess it’s only fair he gets to sit this one out. The only thing I didn’t like about this book was that it was left feeling far more unfinished than previous installments. Be prepared to wait to find out the true outcome.
