THE DOG IN THE DARK
This is a lively, enjoyable addition to the byzantine world of the Noble Dead universe. The characters continue to develop as the half-elf, dhampir and elven dog sail off on their quest. However, it is quite verbose in places, using quite a lot of description when something short and sweet would have been better to tighten the pacing. But readers can count on a great deal of adventure and deception, which makes the somewhat lengthy read worth it.
