I liked the book, but it was hard to read in some parts. I didn't like that the characters had to go through such absolute misery--I really felt bad for them. Their pain seemed so senseless and their misery so deep that it was pretty hard for me to go on. The story telling was good, and I am very happy that the story unfolded in such an artistic form that what seemed like chaos at first becomes a masterpiece of things falling into place. It was AWESOME, and I am happy to have finished. I really admire the writing style--the author tackled really tough topics and imparted some great perspectives on how to deal with problems. The outlook about the horrible things that happened to each character is something that I think worthwhile to ponder on. It was not a disney novel, and it is good that the characters had so much depth-- I almost felt as if they were real people.

Wow! Another great trilogy from Robin Hobb concluded. The third book kicks off immediately where we last left Althea, Kennit, Reyn & co. There are still a few surprises in store, and most of the loose ends are neatly wrapped up.

This is the last book in the trilogy of the Liveship Traders, which is set in the same general period and area as the Assassin series. I got this book from Amazon.co.uk as it is not yet released in the US. Well worth every penny spent on postage. I feel this is one of the most satisfying fantasy series I have read ( I am forty plus and do read a lot) and better than the author's own Assassin series which was very good too.
