Reflecting as I write this little blurb, I'm dropping this back to two stars. I was pretty disappointed with this last installment. I think splitting this into three novels was a big mistake. Would have been much better as a stand alone with tight editing to keep the plot tense.Glad Hauk finally got his girl but by the end I was mostly bored. Order of Ananke, who? Diabolical scheme, what? Underwhelming and anticlimactic. Too bad.
