Anna is one of my favorite heroines. Briggs did an amazing job making you not only root for her, given her traumatic past, but believe in the confidence and power she has achieved since; giving her an unusual amount of depth for an ongoing series such as this. The first two and a half books proved this by laying out with great character development and I was most looking forward to the next step in that progress with this book but unfortunately it begins years after the last and I felt more than a little let down.
My interest picked up again when I realized the emotional plot of the book was about Charles trying to square his budding humanity to the fierce, God-like character he was made out to be. I'm the anti-fan of mysteries and cop dramas but I pushed through all that in this book to have my faith renewed in the interesting way the book ended things.
