This one was pretty good. It was a little disjointed at first, but once the greater plot came out it was great to see how all the different factions were responding to the same event. A new spin on the Dark Elves was definitely interesting. These elves are not the same kind of evil as the Drow in Salvatore's novels, where everyone schemes and backstabs. The Nifl are presented as more like ordinary people with ordinary relationships; they just have a much broader view of what is acceptable and what is not than most other races.

The only part I felt was out of place were the characters in the tavern. They may have been there to serve as the voice of the common people for the reader, but I felt they were unnecessary and did not contribute anything to the novel.

Other than that, it was great!
