Holy hotness, Batman! After the first one, I thought maybe the sex would be toned down in this one, too, which would be fine. I didn't miss the kink in the last one. But right off the bat, wow. That's not to say the sex overpowered the storyline. The story was still great and engaging and I can't wait for the next one (Sheridan and Finn should be interesting), but it was pretty darn hot sex. I didn't expect the whole Halloween splittage thing. And I don't think anyone could see the ultimate result coming. But it was a great story, a good way to keep the story and the prophecy moving, and it made me want to read the next one.
