“They’ve just stood off all the devils from hell, so I don’t imagine they’ll be cowed by men in red dresses.”

Like the last book, this one picks up the story where book 2 ended. I still have the feeling that these 3 novellas work better as one big volume rather than 3 separate books. The author did a better job than last book in summarizing and refreshing our memory of the characters and the events which makes sense since this is a book by itself.

The prose is not bad! I can’t say that I am a big fan or that it was a prose that I will remember for a long time but at the same time, it was not bad, it was just average. I was not bored and did not want to DNF it which are good signs!

The story in my opinion is still character driven and I think I got used to that after 3 books! I think the main character grew very much through the series which is awesome too. the secondary characters are not any less impressive and I respect that.

The plot in this one was more action packed than book 1 but more organized than book 2 so that was definitely a step in the right direction. I actually know what the message the author was trying to tell and I said before that I like books that involve religion in them because in real life that is a part that gets involved in every thing. I think readers should keep an open-mind while reading this because some of them may view it was blasphemy. After finishing the book I did my research on the author and I was right, he is an atheist. I really did not have any problem with that because the author do it in a respectful way.

Summary: This is a good inclusion to the series with fleshed out characters, good prose and some pretty action.
