This is the 4th book in the Adventures of Owl series. Originally I had heard there were going to be 4 books in this series, but from the way this book ended there has to be at least one more book planned in this series. This is a very fun series and this book continues that trend. I really enjoyed it; it was fast-paced and fun.

We get to visit a lot of amazing locations, go on some amazing quests with Owl, and there is a ton of action. We spend a lot of time with Artemis this book and for the majority of the book Owl is trying to figure out a way to get the Electric Samurai armor off of Rynn.

I do have a few complaints. The first is that Owl just doesn't really grow or change much as a character; she doesn't seem to ever learn from her mistakes. The second is that this book suffers from a typical UF heroine issue; the heroine is just always completely run ragged and never gets a break or takes care of herself. This is an issue in a number of UF books and reading these types of books always make me feel exhausted out of sympathy for the heroine.

The last issue I had was that I did get a bit sick of Owl constantly getting a bag thrown over her head and getting dragged away somewhere; this happened many many times in this book and was used way too much as a plot device.

Overall, despite some things I didn't like about the story, this was still an enjoyable urban fantasy and I would recommend. I keep hoping Owl is going to âgrow upâ a bit and be treated a bit better by the story at some point. I plan on reading the next book in the series, but if it's more of the same I probably won't continue with this series.
