I was delighted that this novel was more to my liking. I felt like this was a much stronger novel. Lots of great twists and red herrings to keep you guessing. The end of the novel I thought was a little coincidental on timing which I felt was unbelievable. That said I think this is one that you will enjoy. I did feel that this novel was one of the darkest so far in the series. I did feel like this was a redeeming novel after the last one.
