Through the Ever Night doesn't match the excitement of this series' initial volume. The plot seems mostly concerned with Peregrine's internal political struggles with his fellow members of the Tides, and these never quite generate the suspense necessary to drive the narrative. Aria's adventures in exile have a little more oomph, but too much of the book feels as if the author is making time until the big finish. Here's hoping the final installment will justify the measured pace of Through the Ever Night.
