I did like this one but for whatever reason, it seemed to go a bit too slow for me....at least at first. I would probably bump this to a 3.5 just because of Cas' overall snarkiness.I still love the characters in this story - Cas and Thomas...sometimes Carmel. I get why Carmel decided what she did but she did it in a crappy way. Thomas and Cas have a great friendship and when Cas chose Thomas as his anchor, it said a lot about just how much he trusts him. I don't always get to read about great male friendships and it is clear they have one.Overall, a nice end to a good story.
