Where the first two novels were fairly slow-paced, this now moves the story quite clearly ahead towards a final confrontation. Emma is the more central character again, but Mara's background reveals also finally connect the two plot lines properly - and she's by the end of it "in the same time" as Emma.
A lot of this takes place in Hell, with Emma decisively more about power now than just being a reasonable person - and she's not afraid to use it. I don't want to say too much else, to avoid spoilers, but it's definitely a great entry in a great series.
There's some mildly annoying niggles, but nothing that should be too big an issue as long as you enjoy quirky fantasy. However, I feel a lot still hinges on the final novel - it's essentially a three book build-up for Mara and Emma to meet (again) and the bad guys to come out more in the open, so that really needs to be handled well ... and I can only hope that that book will at some point appear.
