I was kind of bored until Arvid came back into the picture...I like Arvid. Has a definite " to be continued" feeling.

Review by

I love that the world which seemed so straight forward in the original Paksenarrion series continues to get more complex. The only reason I can't give this five stars, is that it feels like a book setting up the big finish in the next installment. I honestly don't know how Mrs. Moon is going to tie everything up in a single volume but I can't wait to find out.<br/><br/>A wonderful scene with King Kieri, and continued development of Arvid were among the highlights of book 4 for me.
