I enjoyed the first two books of this series, but it was the third that made it a must read for me. It had action, adventure, intrigue and some interesting and surprising revelations. Unfortunately, this book dropped the ball and gave up most of the momentum built in the last book. Politics. That pretty much sums up the plotline in a nutshell.The story started out good, with a mystery and a dead body (like usual). One of the Dead from TirNaNog is found decapitated. He's literally a dead Dead guy. Though it has a certain macabre humor, this premise quickly devolved into a political struggle acted out through a conflict between Solitaries (fey who are too unusual/ugly to be accepted) and the Dead. That conflict - that mystery - is completely secondary to the political machinations going on. Connor can't talk to anyone who doesn't have a hidden agenda!As for Connor's black mass that blocks his abilities? We get closer to an answer there. But, after four books, I tired of moving "closer." I'm beginning to feel like a horse chasing a carrot hung in front of me that I can never catch. I can understand a thread running through all the books to interconnect them and make them more than stand alone mysteries. But when that thread prevents any resolution from occurring, it becomes frustrating. Every book has Connor recalling all he lost when he lost his abilities (wealth, status, power) and yet now he sees how wrong the Guild is and how he can no longer support its agenda. Methinks he doth protest too much. Would he still be a changed man if he got those abilities back? I'd love to find out.There was some good things that kept me reading through to the end. Readers learn more about Murdock, his new essence shield and his family. The mystery surrounding just who "The Hound" is was a surprise. Eorla Kruge as a powerful fey NOT out to step on the little people was a breath of fresh air. If they hadn't been so dominant, the politics were also interesting. However, at the end I didn't feel like the story progressed. The only difference between the beginning and the end are some casualties - and a lot more questions. It makes me reluctant to try the author's other series set in the same world. I will read the next book, but if there is no resolution - I won't be back for more.

The author is getting better with each book in this series. With this book, he solves the problem of the Taint, but not at no little cost to some of the characters. Connor is losing some of his allies and friends, but gaining others along the way. The twisting and turnings of normal and Fey plots are coming to light, and he seems to be everyone's favorite scapegoat. Good thing he's slippery, or lucky. And some of the questions about his darkness are finally being answered. I wonder what he'll do in the next book, with Eolora declaring herself a leader of the solitary Fey, and the Weird as her "court" so to say and that being beholden to neither Maeve, or Donor. And with both Meryl and his mentor Magnus in comas, and with himself being the instrument of his best friend's fathers death. There's a lot of questions still left to be dealt with.
