This book had a little bit of something for everyone. Lots of action with well thought-out battles and suspenseful turns of events. There was suspense, politics and intrique. Lots of good stuff :)
But what really made this series interesting were the characters. The main characters were well-thought-out and developed as the story progressed. Plus they weren't the usual invincible heroes that are found in many of today's fantasy books. Instead, they faced real struggles and often needed outside help to overcome the odds. The characters often doubted themselves and what they should do. This made the story more interesting to me. Plus, the emotions of the characters felt real to me.
Add to this some really interesting villains and an interesting story-line and you get a really good novel. A fun and interesting read.
My only real complaint is that in a few places the action seemed a little rushed. But overall this did not detract from the quality of the narrative.
One word of warning - This is the final book of a trilogy and you will be lost if you don't read the first two books, but both of those were very good books as well.
