[a:Larry Correia|1136158|Larry Correia|http://www.goodreads.com/images/nophoto/nophoto-M-50×66.jpg], you are a very mean author!!! Ok, I loved the book, right up to the end, and now I need the next book in the series. You know the one: the one that may not even be written yet. Some authors will leave a book on a cliffhanger, but not Larry. He wrapped it all up nice and neat, making it a wonderfully complete story. However, he also set the stage for a next book without making any promises. Aaargh!!!

Now, as to the rest of this book rather than just the finish. The story was an unexpected departure from the other books in the series, focusing on Harbinger rather than Owen. Mechanically it was much the same as the other books in the series, but it did a great job of introducing new characters for you to love and hate before killing most of them off again by the end of the book. See? Just like the prior two books. One great thing about this book is that we finally get a look at Harbinger and get to know his back story. That alone was worth the price of admission.

Will I read this book again? You bet, and I imagine that by the time the next book is released this book will in tatters and need replacing.
