I know the last few books haven't been terribly popular with a lot of people...but a visit with these characters is always fun for me. The thought that the next book will be the last in the series is just sad for me. I've loved the books since I stumbled upon the first one on the shelf at a Waldenbooks back in 2001. Anyway, some ends were tied up in this book and what happened in the end was the definite "tell" in how the series will end. It's the ending most of us expect I'm sure, even though it's not the one I want. If you like this series, you'll like this one. RECOMMEND!
