Times Convert by Deborah HarknessA little disappointing, if Im honest. I was happy to read it, and it was nice to revisit familiar characters, and to get a deeper look into Marcuss past, but the whole 400 pages felt meandering and slightly pointless. There was no danger, no urgency, no mystery--none of the hallmarks of the original trilogy that made it so absorbing to read. It felt like a history lesson of the American and French Revolutions that just so happened to include vampires. The last 100 pages seemed rushed, though the conclusion was satisfying at least. I hope if Harkness decides to return to this world in the future that she can tighten up the stories and imbue them with a little more of the magic that was so integral to the first three books.
