Through chapter 11 so much going on and coming together. This is by far my favorite book of the series, this far into the book. (view spoiler)

Sweet. I'm trying to make some progress early. Starting Wednesday it is probably going to be rough for me to process on non audiobooks such as this one. So I'm sure you'll catch right up.


Olivia (vinjii) | 1073 comments I'm not going to start before the 20th, mostly because I have to get the book from the store and for that I have to travel into the city.

Mayim de Vries | 2918 comments I will be starting tomorrow in the morning as I just finished the Heir of Novron. Scott, what are your general impressions? Does it keep the quality?

I've enjoyed this more than either of the first two. The only negative I would say is Fox's chapters have been mediocre. However the chapters with the main group exceptional.

I though it was smarty done, without info dumps and in a natural way. I like the heady mixture of joy and sadness.

Agreed. It really picks up from here.

Regarding long-term theories (also regarding various relationships) mine are the following:

This line was great Scott. But what was interesting for me was the realisation that Inda (view spoiler) I think I caught up with you, but this reads really fast. And as I start chapter 20 I am really anxious that (view spoiler)


Mayim de Vries | 2918 comments Chapter 20 (view spoiler)
It seems I am needlessly paranoid.

I don't think we know yet. I considered and dismissed several characters as impossible. I think this was a primer.


Miche | 3092 comments You both are flying with this one! I will start it tonight. :)


Mayim de Vries | 2918 comments I have finished part 1 (Miche, it reads really fast!).

My overall impressions in pros and cons:

I've slowed down a bit as I had told everybody I would have to. You'll all catch me.


Mayim de Vries | 2918 comments Book 2 chapter 5 ending is just terrifying.


Mayim de Vries | 2918 comments I hate Evred more with each passing chapter.

Same. So many feelings!


Miche | 3092 comments I loved the line opener:

"After nine years of exile, Inda was going home. "

I am not going to lie, I got emotional when I read it.

So far this is my favorite book too. Great plot development so far.

I know! I had similar thoughts, later on (you'll know when), thinking that should something like that happen to me and Mr de Vries I would go on a murderous rampage. Lol.
