I thought I was going to dive head in with another story about Richard and Kalen, but I was surprised to find this book empty. I did like the fact that it picked up where Confesser left off, but it wasn't all that good. I thought in this one, Richard was a bit slow figuring out things. I am used to the Richard who picks up on everything. Even Zed seemed off in this book. I thought Cara would be the same after getting married, but she was not the Cara I knew. What happen Terry? You let me down on this book. After reading the SOT series I wanted more, I thought I would find it in this book, but...I didn't.
