Gah! Best one so far. Can't get enough of Terrible and Chess and the stakes just keep getting higher and higher. I can't BELIEVE that the 6th book is just in the wind right now. I'll have to tide myself over with the little side novellas she's written. This was by far my favorite in the series, which was just brilliant, because now that Chess and Terrible are officially togehter, and Chess continues to be drug addict, as well as continues to improve her badass-witchery skills, it could have gone off the rails. I usually get bored with series if they start to get repetitive. This one had me filling the pages like mad. The mystery worked better for me than in previous books because it was all wrapped up in the drama and darkness that is Downside and Chess and Terrible's world.
