This has been one of my favourite series of all time. The way the narrative has grown and progressed has been impressive and I had feared it would stretch itself thin over time, dragging on for the sake of yet another release. But no, the Seal of the Worm is a fantastic and truly satisfying end that kept me riveted and inescapably captivated until the very last word. Enjoy fellow reader, I feel you will not be disappointed.

This book is a real achievement. It's built on the basis of 9 preceding novels, meaning that a vast array of characters and places have detailed back stories, which all add to a great sense of realism even within the fantasy realm. The plot is largely unpredictable and has plenty of twists and turns. Characters are quite well developed, and while perhaps they lack a little depth sometimes, they are recognisable and consistent and Tchaikovsky builds interesting scenarios and dynamics around them. Often taking both sides of a divide rather than presenting one as simply 'good' or 'bad'. He also thoughtfully explores through plot and characterisation a number of real life issues from equal opportunities, to types of governance, to science vs religion to moral dilemmas (such as does the ends justify the means). By now (10 books in) the concepts of Apt and Inapt and the various kinden (types of human) are delightfully rich and well developed. What stands out for me though is the sheer enjoyment of it all. This inventive creation is bursting with life, and I am sure for the author it has been a labour of love. Don't start reading with this book though. Read them all in sequence. Even though a few of them aren't up to this impeccable standard. It's worth it.
