This is the third, and last, book of the "Farseer" trilogy. It is written in the style of Stephen R. Donaldson, with the main character possessing the attributes of an anti-hero. FitzChivalry is blissfully unaware of the events swirling around him. He ignores the advice of his mentors, stumbling perpetually into one ambush or unfortunate incident after another. He seems totally unable to plan, to assess his environment, to perceive danger, or to make reasoned decisions. He fails to exercise due caution, even though he is aware that enemies are seeking to kill him. This calamitous book is almost painful to read. The only anticipation available to a reader is the wonder as to what kind of mess our hero will find himself in next. The ending is a bit anticlimactic. The book is, however, well-written with very few editing errors. The story is well-told and entertaining. The main character's denseness and lack of awareness make him unsympathetic in my opinion.

I will agree with some of the other reviewers that the 3rd book in the series came across....lacking compared to the first 2 books. I found Fitz actions over the top sometimes, ridiculous others and downright ignorant most of the time. The new characters were a bit of dissapointment also. As for the ending, I would definitely agree that it dragged on to the point of forcing myself to finish the book. I feel odd giving this review because the past 2 books were sensational but I felt this book was tired and weak compared to the first 2. Still great to some levels but overall not as sharp as the others.
