Worth the time! I was a bit frustrated with Lia throughout book 1 & 2. I excused her demeanor to the period in which the book takes place and I'm glad book 3 proved me right. She finally grows a pair and we are presented with a stronger Lia. Only problem is since book 1 we hear about how strong her powers are an yet we never see her power. Didn't like that. Ultimately it is Alice who saves the day. Not Lia.
