I really enjoyed this one. Some don't find the formula of the newer books to be as satisfying as the hard-defined PNR of the earlier series books, but in all honesty, I think the most recent books are some of my favorites.The roaming PoV's does sort of shift the focus away from the main couple more than it possibly should, but this is nothing new, since this has been the emerging pattern, most noticeable in Rhev's book (oh Ward...please let me have some more of him in future books!) Manny and Payne's relationship did take a little bit of backseat to V's inner torment being front and center, but I actually found V's story to be a great follow-up to what I felt was some unfinished business left unresolved in his own book.I have seen some complaints about Payne being much softer and helpless in this book, and it really didn't bother me, simply because it was strongly hinted at that she would up front and center fighting with the brothers in the future. She's got too much of the fierceness in her, like Xhex does.There was not enough Blay and Qhuinn story though! They were up front and center at the start of the book and that dropped off quickly. It was nice to see a little bit of the "behind closed doors" relationship between Blay and Sax. Even though I'm team Qhuay all the way, I still really like Saxton's sweetness and hope he gets his own HEA.All in all, the book was one of my favorites of the series. Unfortunately now, I get to sit back and wait another impossibly long stretch for the next book to come out.
