Cat and Bones actually talk to each other, discuss strategy ahead of time, remember to not attempt to sideline each other. And amazeballs, there's still plenty of action and drama in the book! The death of one of the secondary characters was touching, and the resolution to the story was mostly satisfying. I like that Cat no longer hides her differences. It's good to see someone accept all their parts and to admit when some parts are less than wonderful. I actually want to read the next book for the story, not just because I'm working my way through a not boring book series.
