  1.  Anticlimactic after a great build up 9 September, 2013 On
    ** spoiler alert ** The issue I have with this book is that it is one long and winding saga of the capture (or near capture) and escape of Fitz at the hands of Regal with a lot of inconsequential introductions through out the book. An entirely too much time is wasted in the beginning in the recuperation of the protagonist in the beginning of the book and little of import happens during this period. Thereafter characters are introduced for the next 20% of the book who have absolutely no role to play in the eventual scheme of things. Crisper editing of the first half of the book would have made for a much better reading and made the end feel a lot less anticlimactic.
    Further, some of the characters are built to have a role to play in the end but really end up doing not much. The disappointment is at its highest point when the central conflict of the entire series, the Fitz vs Regal rivalry is concluded in about 10 lines. There is a lot in the book that is left unexplained...

    Overall, one is left disappointed after the build up and anticipation created by the first two books of the series.
