really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy
Read in January, 2008

Once again, I get through a trilogy and think, “This would have been better if it was two volumes instead of three.” I got bogged down in the details during Vol. 2, especially; and since the series also suffers from a measure of the didacticism so common in YA and teen lit, this was nearly enough to make me put it down for good. But, the overall resolution was slightly surprising, not quite inevitable, and fairly awesome. The “point” of the lecturing aspects was that “right” sometimes depends on your point of view. That makes it a lot more complicated than the typical Good! vs. Evil! approach, which is an unusual virtue in such a work.
