Hard to rate that book. It got potential for a higher score but fail to pass to the next level.

The basic story is good. Veteran Mage-warrior Zarranda Starr need money to pay is estate to retire to she organized a caravan to make money. After a few fights she arrived in the city to have it confiscated by corrupted local official.
She got caught in the political intrigue and finish the by fighting deep evil in the city.

The problem is the first half of the book is only about the caravan and fight t

I thought that this was going to be the story about a wayward prince-in-hiding's (who has been introduced in several novels before this, and has been stated in other readings to have come back to Tethyr and reclaimed his throne) return to his kingdom. This is not that story.

The book is broken into 3 parts, the first one taking up half the book. Unfortunatly, it was done in the typical style of this genre during this time period (early 90's) The author introduces his characters, who are just bizz

This is a tough one to review for me. I found the author quite talented. He is skilled with language and creates memorable characters.

So what's wrong?

Hackish political (libertarian to be specific) diatribe is wedged into the story in a most unpleasant way. There is a short speech near the end that felt like John Galt's final speech in Atlas Shrugged in a mega-condensed format.

Without the politics, this one is easily 4 stars for me.

This is the worst FR novel I've read. It's D&D meets My Little Pony, trying in the end to mix Kult to it. The characters are very poorly written, the chapters are almost a succession of random encounters only to be fast-wrapped in the end. The first two-thirds are slow and lame, full of useless descriptions, until it is fast paced but still filled with lame dialogue. The main character, Zaranda Star, is a noble turned wizard turned fighter turned merchant turned adventurer turned entrepreneu ...more
