Ok, but can be done without,
This review is from: Trickster's Choice (Paperback)
Try as I might I can't be enthusiastic about any of Pierce's books after the Lioness quartett. Aly is a fairly interesting character, but after a promising beginnning the book lags and lags. It's meant to have a spy theme, but isn't really clever enough. (I know these books are meant for kids, but so is Artemis Fowl) Aly is also supposed to be funny, but not with overwhelming success.
But then it's all a matter of taste. If you are a fan, you will like this, even though it is not set in Tortall. If you haven't read anything from Pierce before: Go for the Lioness quartett. Of all the work I read (Immortals, Protector, this one and one of the Magic Circle) they have the most fire.
