I am going to bump this book up to 5 stars after my reread.
The first quarter of the book was still kind of ho hum... I am Adam Black and all that mess. But then when Darroc and the Hunters show up it really gets swinging. I think the reason I liked this so much this time was because I could see how things were being arranged to fit with what happened in the Fever series. I found it very fascinating to see the plotline fall into place.
I liked that we got to see Drustan and Daegus. And although Laurie had answered my question about Daegus I now know that he does still have the knowledge of the 13 in him and that allows him to handle the book in the future.
Adam and Gabby were perfect together. I am all for immortality though so I must say that I wish these Highlanders got to have the whole immortal thing with their protection of the Compact.
