I am finding much more clarity with this second reading of this series. This book supports many of the plots started in book three and continues to follow the Bridgeburners, that company of gallows humor sappers who like to blow things up.

So many Swords & Sorcery epics these days are heavy on the sword (and politics, and sex) and very sophomoric in the element of magic. The Books of the Fallen is riddled with gods, demigods, magic relics and strange ancient races with specific magic and much more. There is little reliance on Fantasy cliche creatures like orcs, elves and Gandalfs although there are dragons but with a new twist.
