I was looking for a good series, and this one was pretty highly rated. I found it slow. It could have benefited from a good editor tightening it up...Show More » I heard too much of Winter's angst to find her admirable. She dithers too much. But most disappointing was the end of the story, which really reads like the end of a chapter. No closure whatsoever, and too many details left hanging. This, even in a series, is unforgivable.
