Tentacles. Tentacles. 'nuff said.Okay, this was awk because I didn't really remember Ryan and Juo and I never bothered to read bk 2, so I was about half-way through the book before I realized why the name "Juo-ta-ri" or whatever his long name is sounded so familiar. Actually, I think it was towards the end when it said he arrived in a flurry of wings or something.Still, it's not a bad read. The tentacles earned an extra star, though.
