All is not running smoothly in Londinium. Many are not pleased with Will Iris's taking of the throne, including Cathy. But, having resolved herself to staying in the Nether, she's decided to make the best of it.
Meanwhile, Max feels he's getting closer to the truth about the elimination of his order but has lost the support of the Sorcerer. Going it alone means once again reaching out for Cathy's help, but they'll have to tread carefully now that Will has begun paying more careful attention to her actions.
Ooh, things are heating up again in the Split worlds! One of the things I really love about this series is the way each installment is peppered with plot threads and information that play into and eventually pays off in later books. It makes it easy to move from story to story without losing momentum or interest.
Of course the fact that we're following the same core group of characters through a timeline that's fairly compact also keeps the moment and interest high. Sam is back again with a story that is definitely starting to make more sense as we progress. Additionally, we're finally given insight into another of the Sorcerers and his world as well as Margritte, who we met briefly in book two. Oh, and Ms. Rainer's story is beginning to finally come into play more too.
So see, lots of gloriously fabulous threads, which lead to answers to some questions, and more new questions to consider!
