I am very glad I picked up this series. It has a little bit of everything that I enjoy in other similar series with just a little more edge and gruffness. Kate continues to kick ass, and I absolutely love the way she interacts with the other characters. I love the banter with Saimam, Bran, and, of course, Curran and find it refreshing that she hasn't fallen instantly into a relationship. Looking forward to the next one.
