Yay! Awesome ending. Can't wait for the next one. Its a fairly dark, slow book, and it dragged a bit in the middle, and some aspects of the ending were a bit too neat for my taste, but I still think it takes the series a sort of cumulatively considerably forward. Its not in the slightest what I would have expected from this story and these characters seven books ago, certainly/

(view spoiler) I particularly enjoyed, as Tchaikovsky eviscerates the violent 'warrior ethos' prevalent in a lot of fantasy and strips it bare for the semi-fascist sensibility it is.
