    1. I just finished this and have to comment on it. I think I got this early - perhaps my local bookstore shelved it a week early - because according to every other place I checked, it's not supposed to be out until Tuesday, Aug. 4. That said, I'm done with it.Okay, I liked this series from the start - until Rebel Ice, which I hated with a passion. After I got the gist of it, I skimmed it, and it immediately went to Goodwill.Then, I found Plague of Memory on the "new books" shelf at the library. It [...]


    2. A bit better than the last book. But I just didn't enjoy Jarn. She's a pill. The different perspective on familiar characters and situations is interesting, but she's just to judgmental and sanctimonious to be likable. Although she and Reever are perfect for each other, she doesn't mind being pushed around and he's still a jerk. Cherijo was sometimes rash and immature, certainly prickly, but she was vibrant, funny, and interesting. It's unclear from the end what's really going to happen to these [...]


    3. Spoiler Alert![return]I picked up this book reluctantly since I am fond of Cherijo, and not overly enamored of Jarn. THe last two books have been entertaining, but my heart was not with Jarn--I missed Cherijo. So, I made myself a deal. I would read this book and if Cherijo was not back in this book I would not follow the series. Thankfully she is back.[return]The book is written with Viehl's usual skill and the story lines are great. We revisited a few characters from the past and met a few new [...]


    4. Loved Cherijo and her real human being, three dimensional, conflicted personality. Loved how she grappled with issues of immortality, healing, personal vs. universal destiny, definition of personhood, etc. Hated, absolutely HATED Jarn, whom to me was nothing more than a 2D monolithic plot device who wanted nothing more than to backpedal from any philosophical conflict and go live a boring threescore and ten with her equally un-conflicted friends and family. Agreed with Xonea who felt (although i [...]


    5. Oh my gosh, I'm sitting here blubbering thinking, "No, this can't be!" I've been reading a few reviews for the next/last book in the series and I have a feeling it's going to be harsh like I'm imagining. (view spoiler)[ Jarn has metaphysically walked away bringing Cherijo back. I seem to be the only one who liked Jarn more and I especially loved the way she was with Duncan. One of the last paragraphs, Jarn tells Duncan, "Nothing that is lost is gone forever. It is my turn to wait now." I hope so [...]


    6. My review will contain a spoiler about the end of the bookANK GOD FOR THE END OF THIS BOOK.I was so over Jarn it was beginning to get ridiculous. Everything about her character grated on my nerves, whereas Cherijo I found to be a very interesting and delightful (if a bit angry and hurtful) character. As soon as the end of the chapter hit, I nearly did a dance. I had a huge grin on my face, because I feel like I can finally get back to the point of this series: Cherijo.Reading about Jarn has been [...]


    7. This book was slow compared to the others in this series. Not a lot of action, too much scientific jargon and sadly an ending that I did not like much.As much as I disliked 'Rebel Ice' and the plot twist that the author introduced in that book, I have to say, that I was disappointed with the ending of this book. I suppose that Jarn has grown on me and that her opinion/view of Cherijo has influenced me a bit, but I was sad to see how the author ended this book. I am not too sure that I am going t [...]


    8. Long story short, I'm glad Jarn is gone because she irritated the everloving hell out of me. I was so glad to get Cherijo back, and even though I hate hate HATE the Cherijo/Reever pairing, I'm interested in seeing what happens next in their dynamic. Although I also hope he gets bumped off soon.


    9. This book feels like 85% one story, which is left unfinished, followed by 15% of something else. There's no good narrative arc in book 9. And yet there's something addictive about these books as I keep reading them.



    10. Almost to the end. I did enjoy this one more, and am amazed at how many plots, sub-plots, etc. the author can squeeze into a series. More info on the crystals and the buildup to the final book.



    11. I have no idea what happened. I know it was virtually nonstop action but, wha? and why?Yet still I can't wait until I get the next one. a strange addiction. I am helpless.
