I love nitty-gritty military fantasy and I truly enjoyed this book. Barclay is not afraid to let his characters explore the qualms of life and self:devotion, love, suffering, sacrifice, and death. Though the book does end well, not everyone gets away with a happy ending.

The one thing I love most about the Raven serial is character uniformity. From book one of the Chronicles of the Ravens and throughout the Legacy of the Ravens the characters stayed true. The author never falters in the personalities and distinctive qualities of each of the characters, whether they be the Raven mercenaries themselves or other important figures in the epic tale: no mater what the time was span between each book. A few authors could take a lesson in consistency from Barclay.
