I don't feel that the big reveal was all that big. I'm sure others would have to disagree, as I imagine the whole brain damage thing would make other people think otherwise. But, I dunno, when the doctor was talking about this big secret, I thought it had to do with murder, medical experiments, or something equally horrific. Personally, looking at Shay and Peris didn't horrify me. I thought, "That's it?" The one murder that occurs was what upset me. Maybe there's more to it in the other books, which I still plan to read, as the story itself's pretty decent.
Anyone read this and think that? I feel a little let down.
