It's my second time reading the series and I love it even more than the first time.
I enjoyed the mystery part immensely+ we're introduced to interesting side characters like Stetphen's small crew of justiciars, the Big Scary Council...
And we have more Merrick, y'all!
One of the reasons why I love the books is the way it's written, the great dialogues:
"Inspector Rickaby turned Crane's card over and back as though he expected to find a clue on it.
"Earl Crane. Shouldn't there be an "of" in that?
"No. It's like Earl Gray".
And did I mention am totally crazy about Stephen and Lucien?
On to the next part, because I need more time with those two.
