** spoiler alert ** Meh.

This thing was a one trick pony. Watching a character get bitch-slapped by his own pious righteousness just isn't that interesting. Even if it were, you could tell it was coming from the very first page, so what's the point in reading the rest? Ole' Jocelin was so obviously and one-sidedly loathesome (again, from the first page), there was little of interest or surprise to be found.

By the end I was on my knees begging for the damn tower to fall on the sorry son of a bitch and end it all. But no, the book disappoints on even that simple hope. I almost stopped reading with 15 pages left, but decided to stick it out. Death has never been so boring.
