I read this about 5 years ago and it appears I liked it less this time I felt it dragged for most of the book up until around page 320 or so And there was a lot of magic double talk that was confusing I wish Lackey had had a cast of characters and who they were as well as a dictionary so I could keep the different factions tribes whatever straight The book was confusing Also I didn t like the end much Yes I cried And was it just me Did I miss something or did Baron Melles get away with everything he did and became Emperor I kept waiting for him to get his just dessertsI lowered my original rating from a 4 to a 3 This book must be read in order of the trilogy As to where it fits within the Valdemaran books I would say you might be better off reading the Arrows of the ueen trilogy to get back story on Elspeth as well as the books with Elspeth and Firesong Need Mornelithe Falconsbane and Darkwind Winds of Not necessary but it makes this trilogy much richerIt s strange I think the trilogy with Elspeth is better overall the Mage Winds trilogy perhaps even but there is so much to like about this book this trilogy I think there are elements in this trilogy that are great I ll get to that later Parts of it were slow and tedious in my opinion there were things that weren t explained well didn t make sense were inconsistant or at least appeared that way I got tired of it being stated that Karal felt useless I got tired of the Shin a in proverb about being careful what you ask for They might have mentioned it at least four times in the bookOn page 46 when An desha is speaking to Firesong about Karal he says light heartedly that Karal is occasionally bigoted That really comes out of the blue and sounds harsh and unecessary Maybe in answer to some criticisms that Karal seems too perfect That one really rubbed me the wrong way it was so jarringElspeth in this book she just pie me off She s so arrogant and btchy Arrogant in particular on page 56 and btchy regarding Tremane maybe starting in the middle of the book Religion While it was kind of cool to see the variety of religion in the books I really got tired of it it was or became heavy handed And there was too much divine intervention It make things too easy in a wayFlorian and Karal I don t know if this is good or bad Karal was Florian s Chosen for all intents and purposes Karal should have been chosen But he wasn t Even though the Companions are mystical there doesn t seem to be any particular god involved just individuals that are able to be reincarnated if they choose and retain their memories and control things from behind the scenes to some degree But I think he couldn t technically be chosen because he already belonged to Vykandes so he was unoffically chosen The best things about the book Tremane I love this character Yeah I know some things that were going to happen were too perfect in a sense but I really love how Tremane winds up in Hardorn and what happens to him there The Empire etc I really loved how this series showed how other countries acted worked thought in comparison to the Valdemar we know The Empire was especially well done well fleshed out but then it needed to be The scale of what is happening to whom and why The variety of peoples working together and how they came to be working together I loved the scale of the story Solaris She s not a favorite character but I really came to like her at the endAs I was reading the last pages finding out what happens to who the aftermath of what s done or not and then was done and put the book down I really felt a sense of loss I liked those characters I liked them working together from disparate backgrounds and to find out what happens to them where they go and what they do after what s done is done I was thinking No I guess I just don t like goodbyesSo bits of really great stuff but certainly at times slow uneven confusing Certainly worth readingI ll liking be reading the Arrows series with Talia that came before this trilogy or the Mage Wars trilogy I remember loving that one I suspect when I m done I won t be able to pick a favorite trilogy among the three Then I ll be off to read the Gryphon trilogy or revisit the Vanyel trilogy to see if I still like it as much as I recall

While I reread these every few years I think my rating went down this time There was to much happening in to many places and it felt like most were handled too briefly The ending was far too abrupt The best parts of this book were with the Empire and Hardorn Tremaine was interesting but as usual I find Elspeth very annoying The book was much less satisfying than most of the books are Although getting rid of some of the characters that were too powerful and could likely solve everyone s problems too easily was probably a good idea There were so many mages by the end of this set of books that you suddenly understood Vanyel s actions in making people forget about mage gift
