We've reached Norman's 'war is hell' period, with some really quite harrowing descriptions of the devastation wrought by armies, as Tarl journies to Ar to deliver papers that may well get him killed. We learn a great deal about life for the average citizen too, with some almost Dickensian scenes of the life of the lowest of the low.

And at the end of the book, Tarl is marched off to a rendezvous with the administrator of Ar. And there we leave him, since the next book is yet another hiatus story!

I read this whole series in a marathon session, while stationed in England. The depth and volume of the stories is humbling for any writer and I consider this series very influential in my own approach to writing and world building in general; generic post for all the books in this series as I am finally getting around to recording my reading list in Goodreads.
The title drew me back for this one and I was hoping for a return to glory for the series. Alas, I was disappointed.
