In the first third of this book, I was somewhat disappointed that it wasn't really another Dagmar Shaw book - there is a new POV character instead. But as the book went on, I liked the idea of telling a Dagmar story from the outside - and seeing Sean slowly get sucked into her orbit (just like everyone else who survives her presence ;).I'm not convinced that this book is equally as good as the first two, but it's not "less good" enough to drop my rating, either. So yes - read all three. Devour. Enjoy.
