I had a hard time putting this one down, it had been a long wait. Yes the ending was predictable especially if you've seen the title of the next novel. I thought his actions were very in character. I didn't have any problems with the story format, probably because I'm an urban fantasy fan, not a mystery fan. I want more Mouse! I think he should get his own short story. I loved it when Molly told him it was OK to like both Star Trek and Star Wars. I'm ready for someone to take up the swords.
