More of the same. The Lady's team lupi vs. the big bad "we won't speak her name". So the lupi have allies, dragons, brownies, etc. And team bad has Humans First, demons, black death magic, and a few strategically placed politicians. What's good? This one had some great twists and plot turns as the Lady is working to set up the players on her team. Get to know more Ruben and his wife Deborah, more dragons and Rule struggling to accept Lily's role in the FBI and the danger she is in. What sucks? I hate how the lupi continuously seem to be mere cannon fodder and if we have any more books, with the casualties they endure in each edition, there will be no more clans.
