I had enjoyed the Lord of the Isles original trilogy, so I was a little surprised when I found out that it had become a longer series. While this book was good, I don't know that I would have been able to follow who everyone was if I hadn't already read the other books in the series. This is definitely a book you want read in its proper sequence. It was nice to hear more about the characters that I had really come to enjoy, but the premise seems like it is being stretched out a bit by the author ...more

I really enjoyed this one. Sharina and Beard were probably my two favorite characters. I loved their interaction. I'm trying to understand Ilna and Chalcus, particularly their relationship and I feel like I'm missing something, something that would shed the light on why they are the way they are. Anyway, good story, romping fun action and a great pace throughout.

A good read in early medevil setting (post Roman Empire styled setting). The heros of the story are on continuing quest to unify the Isles (story is not bound by earth's geography). Their world is most warter and the known land masses collectively are known as the Isles.

There is a lot of fantacy in the story line (wizards and monsters). It makes for entertaining light reading.

I liked this one more than some of the previous. I noticed there are details missing between this one and the next. For instance, no wedding and no mention of there ever having been a wedding scheduled. When did they leave for Erdin? If they are doing a roundabout circuit why hasn't more time lapsed? The inner sea does not seem to be that small.

A good ending to this one, pulling a lot of threads together well. Nice character development too. Mind you - these books are getting really long, and a lot of it's padding. I think this is the last one I'll read.

The series is starting to fall into a rut. He is using the same plot device in every book. It's still interesting, but he is running out of ideas. His character creation, as usual, is superb.

Gripping story, with a surprise twist at the end. I wasn't expecting that. Very well told, and keeps you hooked wanting more.

same roadmap but still ok... if you ignore the same stuff he puts in all the books, he tells a good story
