The overall tone is also one of a mid volume novel in a trilogy - characters shuffle around, forces move and alliances are forged in preparation for a concluding chapter. There are times when the whole thing resembles a Runelord shopping expedition as more and more endowments are sought and granted.
So, why more than 2 stars? Firstly, it reads at an excellent pace, helped by the sparse prose. Secondly, in the last quarter the assault on Rugassa actually takes place - I was expecting this in the next book. And there are some significant developments at the end.
I would fully agree with another reviewer that this is not a good a starting point for the Runelord saga. It is after all book 7 in a lengthy series. It is however
a workmanlike continuation of a patchy but occasionally excellent series. I just really, really hope Farland will take his time over subsequent volumes.
Much of this book is concerned with shuffling the characters, and various allies / enemies from place to place. This is quite probably a necessary book in the sequence and so perhaps lacks some of the magical qualities of the previous books, but does (I hope) set up the next book in the series to be a fantastic scintelating continuation, reminiscent of the previously well written, memorable, books in this series.
I can't wait for the next one !
