I've given the book five stars. I've really given the whole trilogy that, cause you can't seperate them, not just this one from the last but from the first, too. It just sort of grows and by the end is so complicated (there's a lot to it) that you couldn't just pick it up and read it without knowing the first two.
Anyway, lots of goodness and excellence for your money.

I'm assuming this was largely the fault of the publisher, Hodder Children's Books, for not providing the editorial services that were clearly needed, as well as doing a rushed job in order to capitalize on the cliffhanger ending of THE ARCHON, the second book of the series.
Perhaps the worst part about this book was―yes, you guessed it, the cliffhanger ending. Having suffered through two of those for the two previous books in the series, I thought that the least Ms. Fisher could do was to provide a resonant ending that tied up all the threads. But she doesn't do that. The novel doesn't ever end, it just drips away. Three stars.
