Book two in the series. It is what it is: A book that seems to be moving at a decent clip, but you reach the end and realize just how little happened. Frankly, while I'm enjoying the series, there's very little that happens, but the things that do happen tend to be of importance to the grand scheme of the war. ( )

Sets the stage for a series of books under this topic. Since I had read other books in this series, this helped me a lot in understanding the following books.
As usual, Griffin paints his characters well. Some are plausible, some are somewhat imploausible and some are downright crazy; and yet the story always moves along at a brisk pace. ( )
