As I had pulled this book out of a book box, I didn’t realize that it was the last in a trilogy until about 50 pages in. While I believe reading the other two books would have helped with some context/back stories, I felt that the book was able to stand on its own.

I enjoyed that the author bounced from character to character telling the story from their perspectives. However, some of the characters didn’t appear to be relevant, so perhaps she was wrapping up a few story lines.

I also liked that the chapters were smaller. It allowed me to pick up the book more frequently as I could read a few pages when I had time and didn’t feel like I was stopping in the middle of something. This was probably a benefit to how the book was written from the multiple characters as well.

The book itself was depicted what appeared to be an epic battle. In the end, the battle itself was very short, so a bit of a letdown for the battle itself. However, I did enjoy the book.

Like BookLovinMama, I felt this book stood on its own quite well. I definitely got the feeling I was missing some of the more subtle interactions, but there was plenty in this volume to inform me about everyone's main loyalties and goals.

I thoroughly enjoyed the magic systems in use here, and the interesting mythology and history of this world. It gave the setting a sense of depth and solemnity that was well-balanced by the humor and action of the story. Bishop is an author I often think I should read more of, but only ever seem to read her books when I stumble across them. Perhaps this one will have been memorable to get me to be more proactive towards finding her work!

Since I checked and I'm able to get the other 2 books of this trilogy at the library, I am taking this one ... it looks like a really good story.
