The best parts about the books in this series is when the family gets together. The fact that they're dysfunctional makes them all that more endearing.
As the overall story is switching to the kids and what their possible problems are and will be, makes me miss the older characters. Annwyl seems to be "softer" as the books go along. I mean, she isn't out killing everyone and everything just for the heck of it. It's like she's thinking before she's doing.
I don't have a lot to say about Eibhear and Izzy. Maybe he did have to go away for so long to finally figure out how he felt about her. When they did finally get together, especially in front of the other side of the family, it felt like Greg and Marcia were hooking up. LOL!!
What happens next in this series will be interesting to read.
