I think this is the first book that I have been really disappointed with. I am not sure if it is because of the story, which I found to be quite boring, or if it was the narrator, as he is awful with female voices.

I did find the story to be quite boring until the last quarter of the book. What I did like is that the Knight of the Word books are starting to collide with the Shannara series. I can see how the one would lead to the other.

One other thing that I forget is how in each of these books there seems to be a terrible sacrifice paid by at least one person in the story. You would think that I would be used to it and expect bad things to happen, but I don't and I was still shocked by a couple of the events in this book.

I hope that the next is able to capture my attention better.
