Read in December, 2008

** spoiler alert ** A very strange book, events stretching over a decade. I wonder how long the entire series lasts. I loved everything in Pug and Tomas' chapters even though the rest of the book seemed slow in comparison. While I loved Milamber's little rebellion around pg 600 this book kind of fell flat towards the end which is what prevented it from getting four stars. It became predictable and I didn't feel that the second book had been set up sufficiently (because, well, feist didn't try).
That being said, this is a good book and can be read as a stand alone, I just wonder how 'trilogy-like' it will shape up to be. Are we never to see Pug and Tomas again? I guess I'll just have to read Silverthorn to find out.

Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and have high hopes for the next two.
