I really liked this storyline. I also like how Ward introduces new characters and Brothers into the storyline.I had two issues. The first issue I had with this book is that everyone seemed to talk like the Brothers. They seemed to be using the slang that was previously associated with the Brothers.Another issue is that the Brothers never seem to get anywhere. Thee is rarely any planning beyong kill and destroy. They are always reacting to a situation. I also don't understand why they fight the lessers. They seem to have no regard for the humans or the glymera (sp). And that being said, why do they allow themselves to be treated like second-class citizens, when they are the ones protecting the glymera (sp)?
