A few spoilers:
It was fun to get back with the characters. But the tone of the story, for at least the first 60% was focused on Colin Cellar’s semi-comedic lost memory. He was in character, but he bounced from scene-to-scene in an almost random order.
And then, there is a fairly clumsy red-herring thrown in when the reader is supposed to believe that the character, Lisa, was a shape-shifted Allesandra, whose overt seduction of Colin was just like the ones in the earlier books.
And it is always snowing, to the point where the weather takes on the role as one of the major characters in the story.
I do not regret the experience of re-reading the series, so as to get a better sense of how Final Disposition was supposed to be the closer. But this was just not Ken Goddard at his best.
(I did download the Henry Lightstone five-book series, and have started reading, with Prey. This speaks to the impact Goddard did have on me when I first came across his books in the local library.)
As the book opens, the main character, Colin Cellars, finds himself in a strange setting that becomes even stranger as he recognizes his personal memories are gone, extracted from his brain. Since this is established within the first few paragraphs, I do not see that revelation as a spoiler. With little recall from the first two books, I knew as much about Cellars as the character knew about himself. That was the point; the reader is learning the back story along with Cellars, sharing his fear and frustration of the unknown.
There are a few typographically errors that should have been caught during proofreading, but that happens. Overall, it is a good story. It is not as good as Balefire, but no one hits a home run every time.
As a previous reviewer noted it did not seem to flow like earlier Ken Goddard novels. The ending came too early and was rather abrupt. The bottom line is, if you've read the first two you might as well read the last book to have some sort of closure, but don't expect great things.
