liked it

Ok, so this isn't a -good- book, but I enjoyed it because I like the setting and it's the 6th in the series. The first book was post-apocalyptic survival fiction, which was fun. After that it turned to more fantasy / socio-political intrigue in the next two books, and the second Emberverse series (Sunset Lands) is pure fantasy -- heck, there's a quest, and the last book is called "The High King of Montival." Fun, but nothing particularly redeeming, and very light. Biggest problem is the overly descriptive sections on Wiccan religion (which are interesting but I end up skipping) and the use of supernatural events that the characters understand but are not explained at all to the reader.
