2.5 starsI have a love/hate relationship with this book.I really could care less about Payne/Manny/The Bastards. In fact, I skimmed most of the book.However, the few chapters on Quinn/Blay and VISHOUS (!!!!) were so good, I can't say I wish I hadn't read this book. Ugh.Don't get me wrong...still love the series. But, man, this one was annoying at times.PS - the whole Manny and his newly found relative (avoiding spoilers here) was such a throw-away. How convenient. Blech.PPS - What the heck? Rehvenge gets his own book and then *poof*...nothing. Sad.
