Well - still definitely a piece of a series. The infodump at the beginning was rather annoying - too much info if you just read the previous book, and I suspect not enough if you hadn't. And at the end...whoopee, Merle's imprisoned again. Too similar to Trumps of Doom's ending for me. There's a lot of info added in the middle of the book, and quite a lot of action at various points. But overall, it feels a bit like a treadmill - or a Red Queen's Race; all that to end up in pretty much the same place he began.
