Default Newest Acorna - Second Wave

I was a bit disappointed in this book, well the last few actually, but then this isn't my favorite series since they're all co-written with Anne.

Firstly, there are a couple of very big editing errors. In one spot they substitute Khorri's name for Acorna's (or it's vice versa, but anyway should have been caught) and in another spot they actually call the planet where the Makahomian Temple Cats are Petaybe! Huge whoops! I don't normally nitpick errors, but these two are pretty bad.

Secondly, there will be another book and I'd really like to see this series just end. I don't like cliff hangers where you HAVE to buy the next book to get an ending and then when that is resolved they leave you hanging with another open ending. I'd buy the book anyway to put in my collection tho.

Becky, I totally agree with you.
I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the different alien races and their impossible names
And then to find it finishes on another cliff hanger, with the possibility of yet another book to follow!
Actually, the funniest bit was where one cat ordered another to "Unpaw my child!"
