I loved the other books in this series and couldn't wait to read this new installment. Sophos is the main character this time, and he's not as exciting as Eugenides. But the story is captivating and Gen does appear and manage to twist events around in unexpected ways. This books moves the plot of the series forward and there definitely must be another sequel in the works. The book doesn't really stand alone - you need to have read the earlier books - so it's probably not a Newbery consideration. But it's a must-read for followers of the series.
