The review on this page gives a synopsis of the start of the book which I am not going to expand on - I hate spoilers.
This book is number 3 out of 4. Daish Kheda has travelled a long way in this series - from a slightly stiff and fractionally pompous man who knew his own worth to someone who has come to question many of the values he used to respect. It makes him a whole lot more likeable.
The more minor characters are real people who I care about, and there is a whole lot more about the dragons, which I really liked. Juliet McKenna has a new slant on dragons that makes a lot of sense to me - they are neither insane destructive forces, nor noble companions, but something far more interesting. Again, no spoilers here, so I won't say any more.
Overall I really enjoyed Western Shore, it is vivid, colourful, entertaining, dramatic, absorbing. As ever with Juliet McKenna the plot took some unexpected turns and near the end of it - after a lot of action - I was starting to wonder what on earth would be left for book 4. Believe me at the end of book 3 she has set up one heck of a situation to be dealt with before the series can end.

Format: Paperback
Western Shore is definitely not a stand-alone entry in to the Aldabreshin Compass sequence. The first hundred and fifty pages have remarkably little to do with the next four hundred. The political wrangling within the first third of the book are assumedly setting up the final book, however it feels remarkably disjointed when the Western Shore plot embarks. The story of this entry offers nothing new, whereas the first books were fresh and exciting and the content is largely similar to that of the first two books. That all said, the character building is excellent and the action of the finale of the highest standard. There is enough here to ensure you read the final chapter, although this book will merely seem a stepping stone to get there.
