Dear Bellusdeo: I love you. I love that you ask questions, and people have
to answer you, and you don't give a shit about whether or not they want to.
In other words, this continues the last book's trend of characters actually sharing information, however grudgingly. I'm starting to grow a little frustrated at how glacially the overarching plot advances (though, in Sagara's defense, it's been advancing at the same pace all series, so I can hardly claim to be surprised in book seven), but I'm still enjoying hanging out with the characters. And I'm looking forward to finally leaving the city next book.
