This was an ok installment in the Bishop/SCU series and ended a three book story line. I wouldn's say I disliked this book it was just a bit dull, although better than Blood Sins in my opinion. I keep remembering Kay Hooper from years ago when I enjoyed her books more. I don't know if I've changed or her writing has. I was not pleased to see the end had a teaser for the next book with the advent of Samuel's spirit in another body. Could we not just let this guy go?
