I love this series! They always have such twists at the end. That said, this one wasn't as good as usual. I guessed the identity of the Attolian quite soon, although I didn't remember his name exactly. (I really do need to reread the books :) Also, I did NOT like the way Eugenides was portrayed in this book. I understand that we are seeing it from Kamet's point of view, but Eugenides is too much and there isn't enough time to see how he was working behind the scenes. Not bad, but could have been better. I still liked it, though and read it in one sitting.
