A new group of enemies turn up, but the plot is still mostly concerned with the conflict between Pack and Ontonguard. At this point the biggest problem for the series is that Ukiah isn’t that interesting anymore. Some long running series with crime or action heroes manages to keep interest in the main character going by piling up more and more personal problems mixed with other stuff going on. Ukiah, on the other hand, doesn’t have many problems. He’s rich, he’s nearly indestructible, he got the babe. Really, the book, like the previous one, is an easy read, but not very exiting. Spencers tries, but so far the first book was the best and rest is just a pale imitation.
