I'm good with non-stop action *as long as it's forward action*. Entirely too much of this felt like everyone chasing their tail. Even better, we're in book 3 and while Ukiah is finally feeling the need for independence (his acting like a helpless child at times is weird to say the least), he's still acting TSTL. Really? You go charging off after your kid without actually putting gas in your bike and, you know, calling for backup? Or even arming yourself?
Of course, there's the whole religious nut burger thing, and the nicknames. Heh; last I checked, a dongle was something despised in computer land - why would someone choose that as a username in the first place, let alone as a nickname.
Of course, everything works out in the end in spite of everything.
