Solid 4 stars for me...loved the widow, Oberon, and the lawyers! What a hoot? This book was so much fun to read. Action packed, the plot clicked right along, and it had good suspense. I love books that have a good group of charachters that feed off of each other. It wasn't overly descriptive - of the changes in scenery or sexual encounters. Favorite line: A friend will help you move; but a really good friend will help you move a body! Great start to the series... Can't wait to see how the student turns out. And, I don't know if anyone picked up that Atticus mentioned to the Morrigan (in passing) that he had a child at one time...hmmmm.Plenty of funny stuff in this one!!
