I don't know... maybe I'm suffering from Spook fatigue from reading 7 of these books in a row. But, it took some effort to finish this, and I felt like a lot of it was just repetition.Same old Spook, with his frustrating black/white views. Same Tom, stumbling too quickly into trouble and getting miraculously saved at the last moment. Same poor Alice, who never gets acceptance even though she seems to save everyone's ass at least once per book. I think I'm going to take a break before continuing on to the next book.
I've come to the conclusion that I really hate Tom Ward, not fond of Mr. Gregory and feel that Alice is too good for them all. After 7 books, Tom has learned NOTHING, IMO, of self-preservation and is just too stupid to live. I understand some of it is part of the plot, but GEEZ! The only reason I am still listening to this series is because my husband likes to finish what he starts and we listen during our daily commute.
Awesome and scary
