A great new edition to the Crown of Stars series by on the finest Fantasy Authors of today. Kate Elliot has once again written a fast paced fantasy epic that leaves the reader gagging for more. Once again we follow Liath, Sanglant and Alian on their journey to understanding, intertwined the story of a king and kingdom in turmoil. While the story is very well written, it doesn't quite reach the level of the first 3 novels in this series, but do not let that hinder your enjoyment of this story.It is still very well written and you will probably find that you cannot put this book down until you reach the end.If you haven't read this series I recommend that you start with the first book "King's Dragon" and read the whole series. Here we definitely have one of the best fantasy epic series ever written and I recommend that you read the lot.
