I'd given up on the Magic Inc. series after the 3rd book because it irritated me so much. I returned for the 4th out of desperation for something light, and found this 5th in the series the best yet. It's still silly, but this one was again set in New York, which is half the fun for me. It also has the best action yet. There's more intrigue, and the magical threat looks like something properly threatening, which it never had in the previous books. I'm actively looking forward to number 6. Getting better all the time.
