    Great Series, Somewhat Disappointing Ending *some spoilers*

    The Inda series by Sherwood Smith was amazing. This intricate world created by Sherwood Smith is populated by three dimensional characters, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and motivations. The complex dilemmas faced by many characters provide much of the tension running through this book. The choices they face are not easy, forcing them to choose between personal loyalty and national and international needs. I highly recommend this book and series, though I suggest that any new readers should start with the first book Inda, so they have a better understanding of the world, characters and plot.

    *major spoiler alert*

    I was personally disappointed by the ending. I felt that Evred was too self-centered and isolated from the world to see how the consequences of his orders would have affected Inda and Iasca Leror in the future. Inda made the moral choice, one that Evred was too blind or unwilling to see. The fact that Evred shunned Inda because he felt betrayed was in-character, but casted him into a new, negative light. Handand also didn't seem to support Inda very much at the end. I felt like Inda was betrayed by his family and closest friends for being a moral leader, which was kind of a depressing ending. I liked the very last chapters-where we learn about Fox-and how he just disappears one day in his ship Treason. I thought that was a very good ending for such a mysterious and conflicted character. I also like the epilogue. Although I was sad to hear about the death of Hadand, I like how Evred finally gets to see the world with Tau by his side.

    Extra:
    On Sherwood Smith's website, she follows the lives of the characters past the ending of this book, so you can find out what happens in the future for them if you are so inclined.

    a super ending to an excellent saga

    Prince Indevan-Dal has regained his honor having warned his country of the Venn invasion and led the defeat of the enemy. He remains in the capital after years of exile and does his duty by pledging his allegiance to the ruler Evred and marrying Tdor although his lover when he lived at sea, the sorceress Dag Signi is unhappy with her relegated status.

    Meanwhile the Venn war fleet returns home to recuperate. Commander Durasnir and his wife Brun hope the foolish youthful monarch Rajnir gives them and their sailors a respite; but fear the real ruler behind the throne Dag Erkric will not allow such. Their trepidation proves correct when Erkric abducts his ten year old son to use as a hostage. There is also a Blood Hunt directed at Signi, who is captured. The Venn are preparing for a second invasion but who shall lead the opposition Inda or Elgar the Fox becomes a controversial distraction.

    The fantastic fourth and final Inda fantasy (see INDA, THE FOX and KING'S SHIELD) is a super ending to an excellent saga as the prime characters constantly must choose between personal desires and kingdom needs. The choices are not easy as loyalty to a king may prove treasonous to a kingdom. Complex with thriving cultures on land and at sea, TREASON'S SHORE completes one of the best fantasy chronicles in years as fans will want to visit the realm of stupendous Sherwood Smith; recommend starting at the beginning to better understand the motives of the prime time players.

    Satisfying end.

    One thing I always dread when finishing a series...if that I will come to the end and there would be no satisfaction. I glad to say this did not happen with this series. It was as happy an ending as I could have expected given the story. It was not perfect..there were some characters that I felt I was left hanging with...but the good far outweighed the bad. This has been one of the more enjoyable series I had read.
