The Dread Empire series was written in a very different style than the Black Company books and at first I wasn't in to it as much. I never did like it quite as much as the Black Company series but I came to enjoy it a lot and consider it a very strong fantasy series.

Sorry Glen Cook, this book wasn't worthy of you. I felt this book's plotline was pretty shallow, the characters were all doing things they wouldn't normally do. Maybe he was trying to add some depth to some of the characters but it fell pretty flat. Also, there were at least two scenes in the novel that were so similar to other scenes that it almost felt like he copy/pasted it.

I'm going to finish the series, but this book didn't follow the upward quality trend that each novel before it seemed to
