I love how with each book we are seeing more into Jill's head. Jill is a very complex and conflicted character, in order to understand why she does what she does we need to see the internal struggle. I also happen to like listening to her snarky little comments. This time around the Circus has come to town, one made of hellbreed and traders. What I loved about this plot is that they actually help the city, in a way. They clear out the suicidal and desperate who have just given up with their situations. While I wouldn't label them as good, they serve more of a purpose than the hellbreed that simply cause terror in town. It's nice to see another side of them. So often we see evil creatures as simply one sided, up to no good beings. Instead Saintcrow has created an enemy that becomes a needed evil as much as hated. The end of the series is in sight...while I am eager to find out what else happens to Jill Kismet, I am sad that I only have 2 books to go.
