My Thoughts:
I went into this book with a bit of an apprehension because it started in a high note. I was sure that it would only go downhill from there! It is probably going downhill, but not with this book just yet. And it probably is going to end up with our group of heroes poor and destitute again because they are trying to dress that scenario up as a win. However it still remains to be seen in the future books.

I wondered what happened to Alice and Grace... I am so glad to see them prospering and Grace maturing! And, yeah, my heart goes out to Carey! Poor thing!!

Book 4 and I am fast becoming a die-hard fan of this series! Couldn't wait to read the next book in the series!!
