Upon re-reading this book, I had to knock it down to three stars. Out of the whole series, this one is dull and lifeless. The creativity and imagination are still there, but they fall flat against Jinian's character. The emotions are missing despite this being the book where the emotions should be the most strongly felt. The best part of this book was the last chapter, and that gives me hope for the final book of the series.
Jinian Footseer Trilogy in omnibus edition, BAO is key
