I am so disappointed. I waited months for this book to come back into print so I could read it. I had it pre-ordered and was looking forward to seeing how this trilogy would end only to find it's not a trilogy at all. JV Jones has sold out. She has joined the ranks of fantasy writers who develop stories with too may subplots and which don't actually reach any real conclusions between the opening and closing pages of a book.

Some of the previous comments rang true for my reading experience of Sword of Red Ice as well. The time that has passed between novels has been so long that it took me about half way through the book for my memory to kick in and resurrect certain minor but memorable characters. Strong female characters really attracted me to the writing of J.V. Jones but I found that the male characters started to override the female in this novel. I loved the little girl Effie and Raina as well as Annwyn and the thoroughly evil assassin (can't remember her name). Although when Raina takes matters into her own hands at the end I couldn't help but think - finally!

I see that I am not the only one who was massively let down by the quality of Sword From Red Ice (SFRI).
