I'm a fan of the Ring of Fire books, but this one left me disappointed.

Flint keeps me awake at night. Once I start one of his books I have a hard time putting it down. His main characters and even some of the periferal ones are interesting and I want to hear more about them.

Some of the stories were good, some downright boring. I am beginning to find the ring of fire universe too disjointed to keep track of all that is going on. I guess I am not interested in devoting my life to one series. You would have to re-read all the books occasionally to keep up, unless you have an amazing memory.
