Wow... this was just awesome. Not only is the world the author created interesting and richly detailed her characters are so very complex and full of surprises. I loved Hart/Ellis from the start and although I figured out they were one and the same before Nyssa did in the story, it was totally cool because I am pretty sure the auther intended it that way. This story was full of action, puzzles and tension. The whole creepy house with scary robots thing was tense enough add crazed killer/burglers and went through the roof. If the rest of this series is as good as this story I am gonnabecome a big fan of Ms. Burke!
