A nice enough book but not one I couldn't put down. Harry is in trouble, gets beaten up a lot, keeps secrets, gets knocked out, gets in life-threatening situations, narrowly escapes said situations, has a conversation with his subconscious self and helps save (kind of) the day. I really liked that he is not the imbalanced super hero that can do anything and be anything without repercussions or limits. He sure has his limits and he stretches them with unpleasant consequences to his health. T
