What I liked about Empress (the first of the series) was the originality of the story, the high level of character development, and the dark themes surrounding it. "The Riven Kingdom (2nd book) was much more typical in its story. The characters although well developed were one sided and the plot was your standard cookie cutter fantasy adventure. It seems to me the 3rd book just throws out everything that made the first a success and simply continues the story evoking just enough emotion from the reader to make him/her finish. The flow of the story is slow and tedious. Most of the characters are predictable, archetypal designs and can be summed up in a few short sentences, for example: Rhian (the main character) is a frustratingly arrogant teenaged girl who spends half of her time being angry at the world, and the other half sulking about, thinking shes a bad person. Dexterity (2ndary character) is an aging toymaker who always takes the moral high ground while he goes around trying to fix the world with hugs and kisses and occasionally bursts into flame. Zandakar.. Sweet Zandakar. I wanted to like him, I really truly did. I cheered him on in all 3 books. I was hoping at the end of the 2nd that he'd be given a vocabulary outside of "Zho, Wei, Yothzay".. and I was obliged. He was given the language skills of a 7 year old. It seemed to me the author got it into her head to create a romance between him and Rhian although she mostly neglected in nurturing and simply used it as a convenient plot device. Alot could have come from this had it been nurtured from the beginning. Maybe I've just grown spoiled on good books but this was a disappointing read. I was expecting alot more from this book and so it pains me to say it but the emotion this book is proficient in inspiring is apathy.

I don't see how a book this long and poorly writen could make it to print.

Overall, this was a good conclusion to the trilogy. Great balance of characters. However, my book was a missprint.Goes from page 182 to 583 and at page 614 it goes back to page 215. 583-614 are also in the right place in the book. Pages 183-213 are nowhere in the book. I would not order online to ensure your book is printed correctly. An intrigal part of the book is missing.
