Stunningly awful. McKiernan writes battle scenes with all the flair of Kent Brockman describing a futbol game. He pads the novel by having characters recount to each other scenes we just read. And he still couldn't finish it, so he added some totally unnecessary appendices. It is hard to believe this was put out by a major publisher.

Maybe I was supposed to read it more like The Silmarillion than Lord of the Rings, but I don't think that would have helped.

Very pleased . . . to never have to read another book by this author again. Worthless.

Slightly less awful than the first trilogy. But not enough to overcome my intense ill will toward the series.

Slightly better than the first one, even as it's even more a rip off of LotR.
