Overall it was enjoyable, at least I wanted to finish it. However I didn't really feel that there was a strong storyline, it felt a little desperate. I was almost relieved when it finished so that I could move on.
An amazingly written book is ruined yet again by Peter Joyce. He 'assigns' an accent to a character then forgets it 2 chapters later. His perplexing pronunciation is honestly the most annoying thing though..
"My thoughts on this story"
I enjoyed the story. The characters are well rounded but you must read the previous books to truly understand the plot. Even though there is alot of war strategy it is not over whelming or tedious but constant with the need of the story. All in all a good continuation of a sequel from a brilliant start "Magication".
