The Series continues to impress

Once again, Diane Duane proves that you can write for young adults without writing down to them.

It's kind of maddening to go through so many books in this series with so little time passing, because you want to know where the characters are going in their lives. This book helps move the character arcs a little further along, and takes you in unexpected directions.

Once again, I must praise the narrator, and point out that I'm already on book six.
