really liked it
Read in July, 2009

One of the things I have greatly enjoyed about this series of books is that I don't need to reread the previous books when the next comes out. While it certainly helps to have read the others, each works well as a standalone. And each of the previous books is memorable enough that re-reading is not required.

The drawback is that Reader and Raelynx--nominally about Cammon, played double duty. It really held two stories: Cammon's growing love for Amalie and Senneth's final showdown with the Gisseltess's. It is both a romance and the final wrap-up of the political plot started in Mystic and Rider.

If both stories had not gripped me so, I think I would have given it three stars. However, once I got over the initial "Oh, darn it! we've switched character focus!" I was still sucked into the story and didn't skip ahead.

So Shinn pulled off the double-duty just fine.
