Good book, slow at first. I personally thought the fight between Mongul and Arkillo was way too short, and the ending to the fight was a WTF moment, but interesting. the little bit between kyle and natu was nice, but the trouble to come will not be any fun. The new Ions reaction was good in my opinion, saying the things he did, the justifiable hate for his people, but still going to help, taking Full responseability for not putting mongul down. but i think he needs to get more back up, unless we will finally see the full ION power. I was put off with the charicterisation of kryb, has a caring and loving mother too the children, not just to instill fear. and finally the RED lantern being released by scar to start the riots, and start the desent into the darkest night seemed poetic, just when you think you have all the advantages, and then betrayed by a guardian.
