Even though I much prefer the Psy-Changeling series (and I didn't get on at all with 'Archangel's Blade'), I actually quite liked Jason's book.
I didn't love it and I worked out the mystery pretty early on, but I liked the setting.
I would prefer for every character not to be damaged in some way. It's like for them to be a strong person, they have to have seen their family butchered or something equally extreme.
However I will carry on with this series though I doubt it will be my fave (I loved the first book but since then...meh, not so much). I am intrigued with where Nalini Singh is taking this because it seems she has a plan.
