Great fun, but ultimately unsatisfying,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Traitor Queen: Book 3 of the Traitor Spy (Traitor Spy Trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed the original series and the basic premise of this sequel trilogy was great. However, on finishing it, I found the whole was less than the sum of its parts. All the key moments seem to pass without any real sense of excitement, and the principal characters didn't really seem to do much. There was an awful lot of situational and introspective analysis but not much action.
(Spoiler alert) As the story moved towards the final battle, I was looking forward to Sonea having a chance to let rip with her magic or descriptions of titanic magic encounters, but they never really came. Still the books were an enjoyable if somewhat unsatisfying read.

Agreed completely. Its a procession with no suspense whatsoever and no action. A titanic battle that finished in about 5 pages with no detail. I love the way SPOILER, that the traitors take the palace without mention and then there are only 20 ashaki left all of a sudden. Spent a hell of a long time reading the trilogy - for nothing
