There's really not a whole lot of action in this book compared to previous books in the series.

That isn't necessarily a bad thing as the plot advances further in one novel than it has in any two others.

But it's still hampered by a writing style that I find a bit irritating.  It's always tell, don't show.  And the characters don't TALK to each other in ways that most human beings that I know do.

Sappy, sentimental, sometimes contrived, it's still interesting enough for me to not downgrade it to 2 stars - which is "I regret buying this".

But like very other book in the series, if you haven't started it, it's not worth slogging through the previous books to get to this one.  But if you have, it's still worth continuing.
