Wizards at War

by Diane Duane

Grade: Good

Quite...apocolyptic, this one. As with many of the earlier ones, there were some fascinating ideas about the nature of time and angels, but also some bad theology.

It got a bit confusing, especially near the end. I'm afraid I didn't really get the Ponch stuff. What exactly was he? And had he always been that? I also didn't get exactly who the "someone standing at the end of his driveway" on the last page was. I assume it was Nita, but it seems a bit strange.

On the pro side, I liked Roshaun in this one, and Dairine too. The end was quite devistating, but it was also ambiguous, so there's hope.
