** spoiler alert ** While this series has been considerably different than Butcher's Dresden series, I have enjoyed it immensely. Other than Lord of the Rings, I find that I do not normally like epic fantasy. However, over the course of the series, the development of Tavi from childhood to adulthood, as well as from being powerless but creative to being powerful and creative, has been a joy to read. Tavi's life seems to parallel those of the "freeman" in the book. They are relatively powerless at the beginning of the book. By the end, there are some game changing moments. When united to a common purpose, people can be strong. I also liked Butcher's insight that sometimes to be united we need a common enemy.

I hope that eventually, he will explore what happens in the next two hundred years in his world. What will the new technologies that Tavi and the others have invented cause the world to look like in the future?
