As far as a stand-alone read, this would be really interesting. The whole “going-after-a-shady-evil-powerful-man” storyline can be quite entertaining.But, as part of this series, it was a bit too Warrick-less for my liking. The few-and-far-between parts with Toreth and Warrick, however, were really telling of how far their relationship has come and I savored them. I love how Warrick knows how to make it all ok for Toreth. God, I want a man to put up with all my shit and idiosyncrasies and my crazies and just figure out how to deal with me. Warrick…call me?!
