Insane, but somehow addictive. I still read it in one go, but first 5 books are my favorite before the mess with multiple mates started. Lissa still saves the world (in this case, multiple universes) while managing to bake cookies under any conditions. She still has to deal with multiple betrayals and heartbreaks. In that regard not much changed. I find I can't judge these books harshly, as they turned from a simple urban fantasy in such a wild sci-fi they stand on they own.
