see also my review of the first volume.
In this volume, the hero gets to know women (and love) much better, and some dents start showing in his armour. But the story keeps going, as before, with the only exception of the last episode, where a happy ending is guaranteed.
The last episode is the one I like the best when it takes place on Aloysius, but I don't like the rest of it, so it's kind of difficult to say which of the 5 books is my favorite.
Even in this case 4 stars is too much, but 3 would be too less.
