This was another awesome book in this series. I love how she ends things too, you get some closure but you're also left wanting for the next book. Again, I was left with tears in my eyes at the end when Zadist came out of the woods; it seems like this is a common theme with Ward's book - I can't seem to finish any of the BDB books without crying at least once.

I can't wait to see what happens with Lash, John Matthew, Tohr, Xhex, Lassiter, and everybody else for that matter. Plus now we've got Payne to deal with too, just what is she going to bring to the table?
