I picked the first book of the series in the airport waiting for my flight and got hooked. I was looking forward to the final (3rd) book of the series, but found it lacking.

Shadow blizzard seemed rushed to me as if the author was bored and wanted to finish off the book quickly. There were so many unanswered questions! about the nameless one and the master which are not explained in this book.
The plot was weak and simplistic :there was not one master but two masters competing...identifying the traitor was obvious for the reader, I think I spotted him earlier than Harold.
Overall a major let-down.

I really got into this series and especially loved this book, I'm a very slow reader but i couldn't pull my self away from this book and finished this one in 3 days (normally takes me at least 2 weeks). It does seem to be a bit of a guys book but is set in an intricate, interesting and immersive world and a great finisher to a trilogy. I especially enjoy a story where the characters are not cut out good guys but have their own flaws and grey personalities and morality. The overall looming "bad guy" is a bit simple and his view or the experiences and views of the men of the crayfish dukedom "silly name i know" isn't explored i don't really care as the protagonist is narrating his view of events which is what makes the story.

A 10 out of 10 from me but keep in mind that it is not everyone's cup of tea.

I personally, cant wait for his next novel.

p.s. This is the first series written in english by the author so don't get anything else from him unless your sure its actually in english if you only speak english.

Format: Paperback
To be honest this is a hard book to review as since I'm a huge fan of the fantasy genre I tend to remember what I've read previously. Whilst this is more a young adult series, for me I've noticed the obvious homage to Lord of the Rings alongside multiple other titles in the Forgotten Realm's series that have had a thief as a lead character with the book feeling more like a cross between a roleplay production.

Don't get me wrong it was fun and if read as light entertainment its OK, but if you want something new or innovative then sadly you're not going to find it here. All in the series was reasonable and will be one to give to young readers to generate a story for them to enjoy before they're ready for Tolkien.

Where to begin? The journey started in previous books has come to an end, well ok not really. It's just getting started if you think about it.

Harold (I do love thieves) and his gang are approaching Hrad Spein. Kli-Kli, it's always good with a comic relief, the dark elves, and human warriors are with him. And they have lost a lot of friends already. Pehov does have a way of killing off people. But then not all should make it, people must fall during the way cos it's a dangerous road so I liked that he is not afraid to do just that.

Much of the book takes places in the darkness that is Hrad Spein. Fights, horrors, revelations, all to save a kingdom and the world. So much more than others think are actually going on. The Dancers, the creators of world, the Houses, and the person that created Siala. Not to mention that Harold is supposed to be a dancer too, which means that he could create a world. He is such an unlikely hero and that makes him better.

The second part took place outside of Hrad. The quest is not yet done and more battles are to come. It's fighting and quest fantasy.

I did feel that there is so many more stories still to tell and I would like to stay in this world, but sadly this was the end of this trilogy. But Pehov has created a very interesting world, and a world I would he happy to visit again. And it feels like home too, it's a world I know, yet it's so very new.

Some of the fight scenes at the end did feel a bit jumpy, but eh, that's life and war. And something did happen that made me sad, but again that's life and sadness is needed in books too.

Conclusion:
I do think there needs to be another Harold trilogy ;)
