As in the previous book in this series, the author should have skipped the epilogue... it was a political/moral lecture tacked on to the end of an over-the-top action novel. I like the over-the-top action, I don't like political/moral lecturing.

The best part about this novel is that the author managed to separate the storyline from the others in the genre (and the others in the series) by choosing a secondary character that stands out in violent-action novels. This didn't change the action or violence level, but it did make the storyline distinguishable - in the future I can look back and say, oh yeah, that's the one with the girl in it. Though... I don't understand the title... but I don't think that really matters.

There's no mystery here - just linear plotting, good guy kicks butt, bad guy dies. I'd skip the epilogue to avoid getting lectured, but, other than that, it's a solid 3/5 action novel, and I would read more in the series because I like the constant forward-momentum and butt-kicking. ( )
