The sixth book in Kate Elliott's expansive and often overly-complicated Crown of Stars series. I enjoyed it, though I disliked the utter lack of Alain appearances through most of the first part of the book. Some of the storylines can drag at times, especially those involving Biscop Antonia and Ivar, but most of the time there's enough action and drama going on to keep you interested. Not a good book to read as a stand-alone, but as a part of the series it's excellent.
