Customer Review

on 3 July 2011
The book has the feel of being cobbled together as an ending to the way all of the others developed rather than planned from the beginning of the series. It would be poor craftsmanship indeed if Erikson originally thought that this was a fitting ending to the series.
It jumps around a lot from character to character so there is no real flow to the main story. Quite a lot is concerned with peripheral action that could have been left out to make a tauter story and concerned with giving characters of significance in earlier books but peripheral here a suitable ending. To my mind the enemy are far too weak and underdeveloped to make substantial foes. Indeed the main foe is a waterless desert that decimates Adjunct Tavore's Bonehunter army before they get to do any fighting.
However, it rattles along at a good pace and is a fair yarn, hence 3 stars. After the truly superb earlier books in the series it is sad to finish on what is possibly the worst.
