Wow. The third book in the series focuses deeply on the troubles of war. Everyone is scheming and no one can be trusted. It took me a while longer to get into this book. There are so many more points of view, so it takes longer to get back to certain characters and the battles and intrigues were sometimes hard to keep up with. About halfway through the book, however, the author deals a HUGE blow that at once both gave me great respect for the author, while also leaving me feel very empty for the rest of the book, like I wasn't able to admit to myself that certain characters were gone. At many times it is very difficult to remember that this is just a story, and these people aren't real. Where six people may have made a claim for the throne, by the end of book three, only two of those people remain, while two siblings may be raised to battle against each other for the throne in Book Four. I can't wait to begin!
