While it was an overall good read, it didn't quite meet the level achieved in Good Intentions. Although the events described are as the title Natural Consequences suggests, the logical results of what happened in the previous story, Natural Consequences had a much darker tone to it than Good Intentions had. The angst in Natural Consequences is understandable and well developed, but having someone deal with emotional baggage is easily overdone, even when the character's baggage is fully justified. Hopefully having resolved most of the darker loose threads, the sequel to Natural Consequences will be able to return to a more light-hearted tone. I look forward to a sequel and hope that the author continues to hone his craft in both this series as well as that of Poor Man's Fight. This series in particular reminds me of many parallels to The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher and hope that like Butcher's Dresden Files, the Good Intentions series will just improve with future additions.
