Add me to the group that thinks the book was predictable but still an enjoyable read. This was a reread for me. I had read the first book before and a few of the later books in the series. I'm going to try to go through the series in order this time. I've already got book 2 on hold at the library.
The setting and the main characters were interesting and the writing just sweeps you along in the story. You know where it is going and can just relax and enjoy the trip.
