Found it cheapest at your local Target store-was cheaper than Amazon. 940 pages, beautiful cover. It was a long time coming. I had to reread the last book again in order to reacquaint myself with where everything left off. Didn't trust myself to remember everything. Glad I did. I love the new book, albeit I have found it a bit 'busy'--hard to explain but there is LOTS happening all the time in it and they are going form place to place, etc. and it's just..well...busy. Leaves lots of openings for another future book. I can only hope it's not another 3-4 yrs in the making :) I wanted to savor it slowly, getting as much out of it as I could--- and just found myself as usual plowing onward and...done in three days, sigh.....ye ken my disappointment Sassenatch? I was disappointed in the opening pages, only negative I have to say. I wanted something different for opening pages, but it picks up quickly.
