I deliberately waited until all three books were out before starting the series. I find it rather odd that Pierce deliberately linked Beka to George, since I thought the story was engrossing enough to stand on its own without a tenuous connection to an already beloved character from her earlier books.

The one thing that kept bothering me was that I found the portrayal of Beka's shyness as her weakness to be rather flimsy. It didn't quite mesh in my head with the 8 year old who ran into the street to grab the Lord Provost's horse. I probably wouldn't have noticed so much except that the story kept looping back to this one characteristic.

Despite that, I really did enjoy the story and the glimpse of life in Tortall before Alanna, and especially life outside of the nobility.
