Without a full review or a lot of spoilers, it's hard to explain why I liked this so much less than the previous volumes in the series. I'll just say two things: (1) I don't think this provides a satisfying wrap-up for most of the story lines started in the earlier books, but the acknowledgements in the front make it clear that there won't be another book to tie things up. (2) In this volume, the main story turns a corner in this book into a very different place, and one I don't really want to be in, especially when I'm hoping to enjoy some low-fantasy espionage, like the rest of the series provides. Sigh.
