I really wish I had the willpower to wait for this series to be complete so I could read them back to back. Even though there isn't too much time in between, waiting for the next segments is torture. And oh how I wish these were longer. Each segment gets better and better and this one is my favorite so far. There is a lot more interaction with Nikolai and the brothers, and I am loving the contrast between how Nikolai deals with Mat and Dougie. The writing and editing is flawless and smooth. I'm totally hooked.
