It was a lot better than I was afraid it would be.
I really like that (so far) Jo hasn't regained her powers. It's pretty sad that she's lost her Olivia identity though.
It was interesting to get away from the troupe for a while but I wanted more Hunter.
The scale of the thing confuses me, too. So will the Tulpa/graying of the troupes only affect Vegas? Or was Jo supposed to have a profound effect on the entire world?
I loved the identity of Zoe Archer, I never would have guessed that.
I feel like Pettersson has gotten away from the Tulpa representing the biggest danger to Jo so hopefully she'll get back to it in the next book so he still feels like the thing that needs to be beaten.
