I should have read Cryoburn last, because you-know-who isn't dead. At first I was confused until I looked at the book for reading order. For some reason I thought this was the last book.
Finally Ivan finds some happiness and doesn't seem to be dodging other people with high ambitions or Miles with his current scheme although that doesn't seem to matter with a bunch of crises are dumped in his lap so to speak. There's a picture on the back of the book with some of the characters which I loved looking at. I love how this book turned out.
