Honeslty, four stars is prett generous, it's more of a 3 1/2 but I wanted to separate it from my ratings of the previous two books. This book started out very slowly with way too much inner dialogue about contradictions and evil and good. It's not that I'm not interested in the concepts--I think the themes present in this books are interesting and complex. Donaldson, however, often forgets to keep the story going (or at least interesting) while he explores them (somewhat lazily) mostly through inner dialogue. About halfway through, however, a lot of concepts which had been endlessly tinkered with throughout the series start to make sense within the story and there is finally some payoff with a very cathartic climactic ending. Overall, it was a better ending than I expected form this fairly mediocre trilogy.
