One thing I really liked about this book is that the author was not afraid to kill off the good guys too. Even though I hated to read that one of my favorite side character didn't make it. I really admire an author who can do that. So few do. I loved Valerius and Rain. It took me a little to get who was who of the side characters but once I did.....I fell in love with them mainly Dalair can't wait for his book. Hopefully it will be soon.
