I came at the book in spurts, having been distracted with other things I had to do over a period of a couple of weeks. The main characters, cast with courage and angst in equal measure, Emily, Lori, Ophelia and Rosalind, are planted firmly on the good side of the fight of Warriors of the Light, and are determinedly set on a mission to protect the world from the evils of the Devil and all his creepy, hideous minions.
