Once again, I loved the book and the characters. Z's transformation is great. However, I wasn't happy about what happened to Thor's wife and the other girl. I guess that adds to the angst that will be dealt with later, but Thor is such a good guy that I hated to see it happen.I was curious about 1 issue though. V gives Butch something to drink toward the end of the story. He says that he had a vission that either he drank the blood or died. I get that it proves his vision is back, but what was going to go wrong? Why did he need the blood in him? I felt like by leaving that undefined it distracted me a little bit from the rest of the story. Otherwise, I'd have given it a 5.
