The best of the series in my opinion. Also the bibliography at the end supplies many other interesting authors and titles to pursue. Isaac learns that his utopian vision of the good that magic can do for the world will always be offset by attempts to use it for nefarious schemes. We humans and inhumans can be capable of the most heinous acts toward others, at least according to most modern literature and maybe going way back to the BIBLE. Personally I read fantasy/sci-fi to escape from books with depressing endings, politics and nasty current events. I have come to like these characters and will miss them. Looking forward to reading more of Hines' work.
This is one of those series that I'm going to have a hard time letting go of (this was the final novel, though Hines has indicated he might self-publish some additional material for this universe at some point). I've gotten really attached to Isaac (he reads even more than me!), and to the whole concept of libromancy.
Isaac struggles with the consequences of having revealed magic to the world, and with his own personal responsibility in the wake of that action. Hines does a good job of showing the gradual shift from avoidance (Isaac doesn't even like people calling him "boss"), to resigned acceptance, to determination to be the best leader he can be.
If you liked the others, you'll like this one. For me, they're somewhere between comfort reading and candy in book form.
