Closer to 3.5 stars.
This is more in the line of a transition book. There are lots of events, occurances, etc, but the book doesn't really go
anywhere. I kind of think it was more about maneuvering people into the right place and setting down information to prepare us for the next book. There's nothing wrong with that in theory. Other authors have managed it and told a great story. Somehow, Harris didn't quite reach that level and I was left feeling slightly disatisfied at the end. I'll continue the series, because I'm interested in seeing where it's going. I just hope the next book ups the ante.
