    Good read

    I thought it was good but felt a little like the ending was not as good as it could have been. It had a great build up and then was just kind of a cliche. Worth the read if read the other books because overall great series

    Excellent as always

    Considering that I don't actually like books with a lot of war scenes and this one has the characters fighting on every front and in every kingdom, my rating says a lot about how I feel regarding Gail Martin's ability to hold the reader's interest. You really do want to learn how it turns out for everyone.
