Book Review: Less Than A Treason by Dana Stabenow

Less Than a Treason (Kate Shugak, # 21)Less Than a Treason by Dana Stabenow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

FINALLY! The cliffhanger at the end of Bad Blood is resolved, or of course there would not be a #21. It’s been so long (over four years!) since I read #20, though, that I had to go back and re-read the last bit of it to understand the beginning of this novel. That wasn’t happy-making, and it had a negative effect on my ability to just dive in and enjoy the book.

Once things got going, though, everything was good – it’s still a five-star read. Kate is in fine form, although as usual she is definitely affected by recent events. We see a lot of Jim Chopin here – in fact, he figures as largely as Kate does. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

Stabenow has always done a good job of showing us a Niniltna that grows and changes with the times, with people coming and going, being born and dying, which is realistic. That hurts at times when you’re attached to the characters. I don’t want to get into spoilers, but you’ll see when you read it. And you should definitely read it!
