    Good Yet Unsatisfying

    After the long wait, Oracle's Queen is a great summer read, but a lackluster finale to the Bonedoll's Twin and Hidden Warrior. The book drags in places, and the first two hundred pages provide exposition that would have made sense in the first two books but drags the third novel down. The book also gets bogged down with yet more new characters, and as chapters shift between different companions, the narrative fails to match the previous books in tone, effect, or pacing. Additionaly, the romance is stilted and moves too slowly and then too quickly, and the ending is not Flewelling's best. It leaves the reader at a loss because it fails to justify the darkness of the novels. Where Flewelling had created a facinating character in Tobin/Tamir, in this book, Tamir becomes more 'girly' as the novel continues and at times undermines her martial upbrining with entirely emotional decisions. The book is worth reading if you have read the other two, and it is nice to see what happens to the key characters, but if you haven't read the other two novels, do not bother with this one. As this trilogy closes, it is clear that Flewelling should return to the court intrigue of Luck in the Shadows and Stalking Darkness. Oracle's Queen is a pleasant read, but not a page turner.
