An interesting writing exercise, but not his best. The World and our familiar characters through the perspective of isolated and poorly informed half siblings of Richard. A gorgeous red head in her early 20s and a large violent psychopath. Around every chapter change I anticipated the perspective of our familiar characters, and it went on for a very long time and never fully moved out of the siblings perspective, though it was neat to interact with them as an outsider. Interesting new pieces to the picture of the way magic and this complex world functions, but it had something lacking. Perhaps too neat and tidy at the end, or maybe the characters actions didn't hit anything familiar to me, their thinking and motivation too paper thin.
I am glad to see this different approach, but I want to get back to what Richard is doing-he is the most captivating character in this series and I miss being with him.
