What a ride this is. I am flat on my backside and reeling. Will be throwing myself into the next book at once. Some brilliance from this one:"I never used to think about things like darkest hours and trials and fault lines."or"Shadows that lacked definition yet tugged at primal fears.or"Voice lessons had begun. I had a feeling they might be brutal tonight."It ends with a bang. It is bad. Rushing to the next book. This is sheer brilliance.
