Break confesses a few more unpleasant details of his personal history to Oz, Alice, and Gil. Vincent, whose child-self features in Break's memories, shows himself to be as twisted and frightening as ever as he plays with his brother Gil's head and tries to nurture seeds of discord.
Sheesh! Vince is a scary, scary guy. And Break's account of his run-in with the Intention of the Abyss gives the reader much to ponder, as do the complex but intriguing ways in which all the characters are slowly being connected to each other, the past, and the as-yet unknown future.
