I really enjoyed this story! What I really liked was that you never knew who the planet was going to get next. Now a new villain, in the form of a 1000 year old man, was racking up a few victims of his own. Since I didn't read the first in the series, there wasn't a link-up for me, but I still didn't feel left out in cold. The story moved along at a really nice clip and there was action and adventure at every turn. Great storywriting!
