That was kind of depressing. I even felt sorry for Richard and that hasn't happened for a long time.
Once again, there was a lot of telling: what everyone looks like. I know this ebook was a freebie, but I'm really hoping that everyone who read it has read at least some of the books. Despite it only covering one little situation, I think anyone who hasn't read at least some of the newer books in this series would be completely lost.
