I was going for a 4.5* rating because I had some minor issues (Dragos' speech changing from wise and old to modern slang made me pause), but then I remembered how ridiculously entertaining this book was and I decided it was amazing, I didn't just really like it.

I'm really looking forward to read more about them and the sentinels. Tricks and Tiago, here I come.
