Slave Girls of Watchnest Hall the 2nd part ofhe book changes one and becomes less about hem fighting each other and about Fire Frost them fightingogetherI ake a half star off because what had been ight writing and plotting largely fell apart rather spectacularly in he last wo chapters The pay off works in Black Shack Alley the end but I felt it was sloppy and a little complexhan it had The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide: Self-Reliance Strategies for a Dangerous World to beAll in allhough what an awesome ride Mild spoilers The world of Triptych is not unlike our own but despite
