Death Note: Zero

Death Note, Vol. 7: Zero (Death Note, #7)Goodreads Synopsis:    Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects - and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal...or his life?

After a high-speed chase, Light and the taskforce apprehend the newest Kira. Light regains his Death Note and his memories, and the depths of his cunning are revealed as the plans he carefully put in place before going into confinement are slowly unveiled. His masterful manipulation of both humans and Shinigami lead him to the strongest position he's yet enjoyed. But the glow of his victory is marred when a new threat appears. Can Light withstand a surprise attack on two fronts?

My Thoughts:

-    Does L ever stop eating?  He likes to play with his food a lot too.

-    Light has some new opposition, and I'm not sure if I like where this series is headed.  It is starting to go in a whole new direction.

-    More new faces are introduced in this volume.  Seems like that we are introduced to someone in every volume.

-    That previous volume that made me angry, it all makes sense in this one!  It was all part of the plot!

-    Towards the end of the book, there is a bit of a time lapse.  

-    Kira's terror is getting worse!
