The body count went up and the shit went down.
Verity is back, and is back on stage for another dance competition. She was a finalist in the fiction version of So You Think You Can Dance, and this year the network is doing an all-star show to try to save its ratings. Unfortunately, the people who are getting eliminated in the competition are getting eliminated, and Verity needs to stop it before the whole show dies for real.
This time was more snark and less smirk, and I still enjoyed it. It's ok if you skim the middle parts this time, but the last fight scene requires some savoring. I recommend reading the books in order, but you can just go 1,2,5 if you are in a hurry.
