I thought this installment was just slightly below Elfstones in quality/likeability. Brin spent the whole time in her head and Jair…I liked his storyline. That’s where all the action was. I totally fell in love with Garet Jax and I hated that we didn’t get to hear more of his story. And Ander’s son…I still want Eventine’s story to be written!
There’s a lot happening, it’s essentially two stories in one, and they only come together in the end. The book doesn’t feel long though, as I said, plenty of action on Jair’s side….and some on Bryn’s.
This trilogy has become an old friend, I read and re-read it every couple of years. And I always miss the characters when I’m done.
