This was a tough one for me. I loved the scenes with Lokan's and Bryn's brothers handling things Topworld, but felt a lot of the scenes Underworld with Lokan and Bryn trying to make their way through the 12 gates were extremely drawn out. Some of this could be the length of time I waited to read the final book after reading the first three. Or it could be how little I felt like we really knew Lokan before this book. The three other books were all about his murder, so we knew of him, but he hadn't starred in any of the books before this. The ending also seemed a bit abrupt to me, but I ws still pleased with the book overall. I enjoyed this series and would definitely recommend it to others to read, but this just wouldn't be in my all time favorite series.
