    " You know how a football game lasts 3 hours and then all the post game coverage is even longer sometimes? That's a bit how this book feels, the first half is a "murthering great battle". Just one battle, mind you. The second half is post-battle reactions. I don't want to say nothing happens in the second half of the book, because some of the revelations are quite significant in setting up further books in the series, but it almost feels that way at times. Fortunately, Stirling is constitutionally incapable of producing 800 page doorstops that fail to either advance the plot or reveal anything new about the characters, this book is blessedly short and does move things along. Still, the book ends up rather oddly paced, something of an inversion of how such books are normally constructed and that keeps it out of four star territory. "

    " The major battle was wonderfully descriptive and well done. The rest of the book felt like unnecessary filler. "

    " good, brief. i wanted to see more development it feels like he is stringing us along "

    " One can only hope that this long and extremely convoluted book and series has come to an end. This book in mainly around one really large batttle with lots of hacking, slashing and poking with sharp things. What started as an interesting idea got lost and kind of weird. I only kept reading out of momentum and not that I was truely invested in the series. Wonder what Sterling will do next? "

    " Gotta make sure I get this on 9/4 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gwen | 12/12/2013

    " Kind of heavy on the descriptions of weapons and battle tactics. I would like to see the plot move along faster... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb | 12/6/2013

    " I liked it, but the books when they were on the quest were still my favorites. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 11/6/2013

    " I have story-itis or I would have stopped reading these a year ago. Oh my god. . . finish the story. And if it can't be finished? At least close this arc. I want to be done for ever and ever and ever. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 11/3/2013

    " This series started out so well but quickly evolved into really long-winded books. Stirling gets too caught up in the details and forgets about a good plot where something actually happens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 10/10/2013

    " This was a fairly satisfying chapter in the series. We know there's more to come, some BIG questions still be answered....but I enjoyed this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curt Hopkins Hopkins | 8/10/2013

    " Can't figure out if this series has ended or not. If so, OK. I like it. But it was unclear. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 5/5/2013

    " Nothing really happened...just more of the war and a little about the sword of the lady. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kei | 2/2/2013

    " He cleaned up many things quite nicely, and set the stage for the next sequence of events. It had less momentum than many of the change books, but in a good way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Scott | 1/4/2013

    " Good but felt very abrupt compared to the rest of the series. Seems likely it was split in half to get to 10 books... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian A. | 11/30/2012

    " Much better than the last installment. As always, I'm left wanting more. "
