My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am very impressed with this series at the ability to captivate me as much as it did. The relationships especially between Arin and Kestrel was very well done and not the least bit annoying at least not to me. I enjoyed how annoying the emperor remained till the end. For me I do not like a lot of detailed War planning and description so I found myself skipping through the long paragraphs where they would discuss their strategy. This is just me I find that that aspect never holds my interest but I am sure those of you out there in love with strategy will enjoy it. I was more interested in seeing what would happen rather than being told and even though we were told there was a surprise added with every new plan anyway.
All in all I did enjoy this book I feel quite satisfied at it’s end. I do not mourn the end of it as I did some other series but it was quite a good read.
