The good - it follows in the same vein as the previous books in the series, tied up the loose ends, had a few twists and turns, was easy reading.
The bad - Regin???? Hello? Alright, people can change, I know that, but to so completely change? Very strange. Although I suppose it could be real life in that a few decades would change anyone! Also - bloodless wars. Very strange. And the Traitors were very organised and found things very easy - I'd've expected more from the Ashaki frankly. I was extremely disappointed, it was like they were only going through the motions really.
If you've got this far - you'll read this anyway. And if you're starting with this book - don't. Go read the first five first.
As the Black Magicians are central to the plot, some rules are broken and some have to be re written. I think that on another level it shows us that sometimes we have to push limits and change rules as the world around us changes and morphs.
The characters are believable and the story is written so that you feel you are amongst it all. I would love to see these 3 book as films, if they can do it with Tolkien they can do it with Canavan.
The only negative ( if it is one) is that it left you wanting to know more...maybe that is the next set of stories
But the earlier series is better.
characters and really knows how to make the ire story I thoroughly enjoyed this book
