Actually, 3.5 stars.
I listened to this one on audio.
I think the thing I liked most about this was the continuation of the world. I do enjoy hearing more about worlds that I know well. I’m a finisher; I like being lost in a place and hearing the whole story. So, for that, I’m happy.
But, I will say that I have a hard time with Aunt Lydia. I won’t give away anything here, but just say that I’m not super interested in why the bad guy is bad. I have very little sympathy right now for the argument of doing bad things for the right reasons...that playing the long game thing.
Did I enjoy listening? Yes. Do I think it was necessary? No.
