What is it about?

Book 1 was the development of the magic system. Book 2 was the development of the political system. Book 3 is where everything comes together and they really have to try to save the world from destruction.

Was it good?

The whole series thus far has been REALLY good. I just didn’t love this one as much as the first two.

I finished the book on November 19, 2018, and am just now writing the review because the 4 books I am currently reading are progressing too slowly for me to have any current updates.

If I remember correctly, the reason I didn’t love book 3 as much was because the characters were scattered across the world and there was a new viewpoint from the character Spook. Even though he was in the first two books we had never read his perspective and I was so eager to read about Vin and OreSeur that for the first half of the book I kept thinking, “UGH! What is it with this guy… get back to Vin!”

The conclusion was NOT what I expected but I loved it more because of that.

If you are looking for a fantasy world that is well thought out, a magic system that is fascinating, and characters that you become invested in…then I would highly recommend this series.
