    I freely admit that the first time I read this book -- badly jetlagged -- I was all, "And now she's gone off the reservation." But a second reading shows that this is the most subtle and brilliant ins...

    Aaargh! Whole premise of first two books summarily dropped in favor of airy-fairy method of communication. Most irritating!...

    I would rate the entire trilogy a 5/5 stars, but wanted to be clear that the first book was my favorite. What I liked about the trilogy as a whole was its unique presentation of the scale and scope of...
