As usual, Mayer has me scratching my head in a good way. The time periods in this novel, while not as interesting as some of the others in previous entries in the series, are filled with some puzzling moments. To clarify that, I'm not talking about the story itself. That is very clear. I mean slight reveals, character plot twists, and nods that really make me want to know what will happen in the series next. The most interesting thing aside from that was the Jefferson time period. Just when I thought the author couldn't tie in any of his other more believable books, he loosely tied in the Jefferson Allegiance. All in all the main plot continues to intrigue and beg the reader to return.
