The writing quality in this series is good. However, I have the same problem with this book as its predecessor: the first 300 pages or so are very slow paced with endless discussion of minute details of family feuds and political scheming. Things get properly giong only sometime after that. I almost gave up on it prior to the second half of the book. The author's later series (the Moirin trilogy) didn't have this problem and I enjoyed it much more.

I loved the final installment of Imriel's trilogy! I wish I could stay with these characters forever - however I know all good things must come to an end. *sigh

Pros: An original and thorough bit of world-building, and an unusual leading character. Well-written.
Cons: A denouement that went on forEVER. (A common feature of many epic fantasies, IMO.)

When all is said and done, it just wasn't my cup of tea. However, I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who was looking for a good fantasy outside the standard sword & sorcery milieu. (That's why I rated it 3 stars instead of 2.)
