    "The Series continues to impress"

    Once again, Diane Duane proves that you can write for young adults without writing down to them.

    It's kind of maddening to go through so many books in this series with so little time passing, because you want to know where the characters are going in their lives. This book helps move the character arcs a little further along, and takes you in unexpected directions.

    Once again, I must praise the narrator, and point out that I'm already on book six.

    "deeper problems"

    I hesitated to "read" this book, since it dealt with the potential death of the central character's mother who has emerged as a great person in her own right over the last few books. I didn't feel that there could be a winning ending. But there was. Additionally my teenage daughter is facing a lot of the pressures Nita does as a freshman in highschool (How far have you two gone? Well why not?)which is nice because she asks me from time to time if she's "the only one who feels this way", regarding the worries and insecurites of a fourteen year old with a best-friend-male (nomenclature due to the fact that she's not allowed to date until she's 16). I've loved all of the books, am currently getting ready to burn #6, and won't leave the house this afternoon until I have a couple of disks ready to go with me.
