4.5 for some minor troubles that are mostly my issues, not the book's. And for not having enough of Agents Beaulieu, Vega or Trovosky, hopefully at the same time.
I really, really liked this kind of, but not really, outside's look at the Agency and the ICoS world. It was tight, fresh and exciting on a first read. I am sure it will still be the next time.
I liked Gordon almost immediately. His attitude grew tiresome at some point (Not a direct quote because I don't have the page in front of me and I'm too lazy to do a search ...interested in some capacity and Gordon had driven him away just by being himself.
Gordon has a couple more thoughts in that regard before that infamous Halloween party that came as whiny instead of self-deprecating to me. That hasn't stopped me from liking him, though. I find Carhart similarly annoying on occasions.I still like the bastard.
I loved Wanda, the level ten groupie.
Now excuse me, I've got some Fade chapters to reread.
