Well, I finished the book and it is pretty good. I would recommend it to others. The character that got killed was who I thought would get killed. After reading how she is connecting some of the characters together, I have changed my mind about a dark ending for book 7. It will be stretch to see how good will triumph over evil in this series though. Now I will give the book to my nephew so he can enjoy reading it. Hopefully, the reading pace will be a little slower.
I was amazed at how fast some user reviews were posted on amazon.com. Our world has some fast readers. Readers in England have a 5 hour head start on American east coast readers so they might have been posting those reviews.
