Other than dragging on a bit much, it's a good story.

That really is my review in a nutshell. I wouldn't call it a GREAT story, but it is a good one. It held my attention. It was interesting, and I wanted to finish it. I enjoyed it.

I also liked the occasional philosophical and even theological musings of the characters. They're few and far between, but they do fit well and give the novel a bit more depth.

But, it was a bit long.

Maybe it's just my attention span, but I think 500+ pages for a fairly simple story is a bit much. It could have been less than half the length if not for the constant running around from faction to faction.

That said, I am looking forward to the last book of this trilogy. I'm interested to read the conclusion (although, from what I read, many people were not satisfied with how it ended...but that makes me even more eager to read it!).
