Disappointing; it's probably me moving on beyond the kind of book this represents but I found it dull, boring and pretentiously empty; all the talk about kings, faith, all the philosophizing for which S. Bakker is renown just made me yawn and I couldn't give a fig for any of the characters of the book; if the No God would come and sweep them into history more the better; a series drop and I kind of regret it since i really loved the first trilogy - though I have not re-read it recently so I am not sure how it will stand; overall books about ancient evil awakened and the mobilizing of huge armies to combat it seems to have become another sub-genre I will give a pass from now on

Brian Finally getting around to reading this and I have to completely agree and it sucks because I also enjoyed the first trilogy. Reading the battle scenes reminded me of a history textbook.
