This is an incredible finale to an extraordinary series. There are so many plot twists you cannot afford to invest too much in any one theory throughout this story. You never know who you can trust or if what is happening is an illusion or reality. The brilliance of it all is that no matter how surprising, the events stay true to character and the mythology. While not everything wraps up tidily, enough of the storyline is resolved so that you're left with a very satisfying finish and still wanting more. I struggled in the beginning of the series and had episodes of exasperation with Mac and Barrons' relationship but received a nice payoff in the end. I highly recommend this book and the series if you're an Urban Fantasy enthusiast. This is no ordinary tale.
