Absolutely fantastic addition to the series. I found it stronger than Volume 10 overall. The plot moves much more smoothly and the character interactions are less cryptic--specifically those between Lawrence and Holo. Fran Vonely, the person they are introduced to, is multi-dimensional and fascinating, and by the end of the book, it is hard not to love her. Definitely a satisfying read for any fan of the series.
best series of books i've ever read
