    "Not the best in the series... but still darn good!"

    Okay, it was time that the quality of this series took a hit. Instead of my normal enthusiastic five starts, this one only gets four.

    Some of the narrative is confusing, and some of the facts are wrong. Autism, for example, doesn't suddenly strike eight-year-olds.

    Still, there's much good in it, and I really liked the way it followed the events of A WIZARD'S DILEMMA. (No spoilers.)

    It sort of feels like an in-between book. I expect that some of the details in this book will come up in the next two.

    I've said it before, but the reader for this book is really good. Without launching into a full performance, she keeps the voices separate, and you can feel each character in the voice.

    "Knowledge shows..."

    Diane Duane's understanding of Autism is good. She presents a story that could be a very plausible explaination for some forms of the syndrome. I think that reading this novel could help some people understand Autism Spectrum from the point of view of some of the individuals who present with it.

    There was also alot of humor in this book. The "awakening" of Kit's dog and the various electronic entities had me laughing out loud several times.
