I wonder if the body count is any lower in the last book. I read _The Stolen 
Lake_ and _Midwinter Nightingale_ just recently, and I couldn't believe how 
different they were from the early books. In _The Wolves of Willoughby Chase_ I 
don't think anyone even dies, except one of the wolves.

I really dislike what that series became, I'm afraid.
