There were things I really liked about it-the attack poodle, the mystery surrounding the new baddie and how it plays out, the Pack politics, Saiman being back to his old self after the events of Magic Bleeds where he seemed a little out of character.

I didn't care for the handling of the Jewish mysticism angle, or the lover's spat between Curran and Kate taking up half the book, and I didn't care for the "evol white guyz being all racist against shapeshifters" subplot-it's not inconsistent with the setting, but it felt like it just got trotted out as an excuse for moral posturing.

Aaand, the excerpt from the new Edge book, featured at the end of Magic Bleeds, sets up the Weird's Louisianans as borderline Nazi analogues. Marvellous. I may have to drop this author.
