I think it is the most emotional book, the most thoughtful as well, among all books I have read in this series so far. OK, wow, this was probably the strongest instalment in the Cal Leandros series for me.

I didn’t expect the series to get better, and I certainly wasn’t expecting the next book to be the best of the series. You get the picture.
