I was very nervous about this book. This was the one where everything changed, where I started pulling strings and showing why certain things never quite seemed to line up. If this series were an episode of Leverage, this book would have been the moment in act three where the con turned and everything suddenly fell into place. Which means, being me, that I have been consumed with terror over the idea that people would think I had somehow cheated.
(It is exhausting, living inside my head. I do not recommend it.)
It has been an honor and a privilege to bring you all with me this far into October's world. All the pieces are in place for the beginning of act two, and I sincerely hope that you will stay with me for as long as it takes to see where the road leads us from here.
Thank you all, so very much.
I can't wait to see what happens next.
