Book 3! There is some really painful twisted dark stuff in this book and the attempt to come to terms with it is far less successful for many of the characters than for a few others. There is also a measure of hope and love and friendship and learning to trust...and sometimes having to let go of something no matter how much you want it/them.

Ciphers, puzzles, math, shadows, lies, truths, shape-shifting into sculpture, sword fighting to new strength. So much cool stuff here.

Saf reminds me a LOT of Locke Lamora.

So lovely to spend more time, albeit just bits here and there, with Katsa and Po. I may need to reread the other two books now as it feels like it's been way too long and also a couple other characters I felt like maybe I should have remembered from Graceling but didn't and want to see if they were in it or not.

A completely satisfying conclusion to this series but I'm (of course!) hoping it's not the end. What happens next to Giddon? How does he recover? I'd love if it that were the next story to come.
