I thoroughly enjoyed this from beginning to end. whereas the first and third books took me a couple of chapters to really get into, this was by far the most gripping of the three! if there were one thing that slightly disappointed me, it is that this series was far lighter on Lawhead's normal spiritual standards, though understandably so being that it is one of his earlier works. usually his faith shines through fairly clearly, but the few references I noticed in these were quite vague. still, an incredible book I would readily recommend to anyone!
