I liked the first 2/3 of this book much more than the last 1/3. Although the misunderstood youth brought into the fold is typical Lackey/Valdemar, it's also well-done. The final section of the book was *not* well-done though - rushed and at times just plain poorly written. Enough that it dropped it from 3+ stars to 2. Seems like she had a deadline and cranked out the last bit in a few late nights.
