    Harry Connolly's done it again. A terrific continuation of the Twenty Palaces series that won't disappoint. The inner workings of the Twenty Palaces Society become clearer and Annalise's development is extremely exciting. I hope I don't have to wait too long for the next chapter in Ray's journey but I'll wait however long it takes.

    This series just keeps getting better! At the end of this book, I was so hooked that I wanted to devour the next installment. Unfortunately, it seems that the author won't be able to publish any more books in this series for a while. I sincerely hope he is able to find a way to do so in the future. This is an excellent and original story.

    a great morality tale

    The Twenty Palace Society of sorcerers kept car thief and amateur magician Ray Lilly from prison time. In return he provides the mages with non-magical support mostly manual labor.

    Ray receives an enigmatic message from a friend that sends him rushing to Los Angeles. Magic has hammered his former car ring associates. They hold him culpable because the sorcerer who cast the deadly enchantment is Wally King who blackmailed him into becoming the pawn of the Twenty Palace Society. Ray searches for the magical source in order to save his friends' lives while increasingly doubting the motives of his puppeteers who claim they save the world from other dimensional monsters while he has killed innocent people for them.

    The final Twenty Palaces urban fantasy thriller (see Child of Fire and Game of Cages) is a great morality tale as the protagonist struggles between duty and honor with the weight of the dead innocents he has killed making the tale. Remorseful Ray understands the mission of the Society is to protect the world from magical predators, but wonders who will protect the world from the Society as collateral damage is an acceptable practice. Fast-paced and loaded with action, Ray's timely and angst ethical dilemma (think of drones in the war against terrorism) makes for a great tale.

    Good read. We'll developed characters.

    Ray Lily is some one you want on your team, a guy that cares. Connolly's writing puts you in Ray's head and it's a real thrill ride. I can't wait for the next book!

    Loved it.

    You find out a lot more about the society and how everything works in this book. It is third in the series and very good. In many ways it isn't as dark as the other two, in spite of the number of people close to him Ray kills.
