I don't think 3 stars is really adequate...but 4 might be to many..how about 3.8 stars. These books are like Lays Potato Chips, you can't read just one. I still like that thus far each book is ONE story, with a beginning a middle and an end.I like the fact that characters and others...things are brought back time to time. ITs all intertwined. I am most curious to see how Mr. Butcher will bring this to a conclusion....there will be a conclusion at some point??
