I hate to disagree with the other reviewers and usually I like Handeland but this book didn't do anything for me. I suffered through the second in the series and wish I had passed on this one, I almost quit numerous times. I'm going to pass on any other in this series.....that said, the heroine is still angst filled, loving Jimmy but still having sex with most comers, specifically Sawyer...sorry for the pun. The story is scattered but at the same time the plot doesn't move far forward, really this could have been a short story if you take out some of the hate/love Jimmy angst. My suggestion, use your credits don't waste your money.
