A kind friend warned me I might want to read Scent of Magic closer to the release of this Taste of Darkness because it ended on a cliffhanger.
No kidding. And, while hooked on the series, I still have mixed feelings on how author did that and some of the dead-missing-resurrected-stasis-notdead-??? stuff that went on. I think if I had read right away and had to wait a year for this book, I would have been irate.
The first few pages of Taste of Darkness is spent with lots of melodrama searching for the missing Kerrick.
