First, I will say that overall, I enjoyed reading the book. The characters were tough but funny, and I liked the interaction between Ava and her best friend and fellow agent-trainee Nicole, as well as the interaction between Ava and McKell. There is some very witty dialogue, and as per the usual Showalter book, the bedroom scenes are hot.

The problems I had with the book were with both the villain and the ending. The actual villain, the Schon Queen, seemed almost cartoonish and unbelievable to me, and the very ending of the book became, in my opinion, ridiculously silly. I also had an issue with how easily someone as tough as Ava was described as being could suddenly become such a simpering, dependent fop over Victor.
Not Showalter's best book, IMO, but not her worst, either.
