4.0 out of 5 stars
good but not great, 13 Sep 2003
i just bought this book and in my style finished it in 5 days, and thought that the book was really good....but it is slow. while the main plot is interesting( people shooting other people in the flacon etc) there are points where the story just drags on or where it goes completely off on its own and your stuck thinking "why have they put this in" and i suspect that the answer will be in visions of the future(which i'm reading now and is a bit faster). if u do buy this book get visions of the future aswell because i assume that the answers will be in there. well they will be but u no what i mean. you'll find out why the characters who have no real part in sceptre of the past are there.
