" 3.5 stars. I enjoyed this book, although not quite as much I hoped I would. I'm unsure if I will read the next book in the series or not now. It honestly got a bit boring at times with the lengthy character studies seeming to be more the focus than the overall story line. I found it hard to believe that a few of the characters would ever have been allowed to go on a mission such as this, too. I did like the main character, though, and his story alone might entice me to go ahead and read the next book to see what happens next. "
