A reasonable end to the story. It's an unremarkable series, but well done for what it is. The storyline with Tarrant is essentially the only part of the series that is consistently intriguing, but I don't regret having read it.

This book was pretty sweet (though if I were able to, I'd probably give it 4.5 stars because it wasn't quite as enjoyable as Mistborn), and definitely worth a read. The writing is occasionally too blunt, but generally the plot is pretty good, and some of the characters are extremely interesting (mostly just Tarrant and the Priest, since Ciani and Senzei are both quite boring/one dimensional). I never had trouble getting through this book, and am definitely looking forward to the next 2 in the series.… (more)

This was a reasonable continuation to the series, though it doesn't introduce much in the way of new and exciting things after the first book. While I expected a bit more, I certainly wasn't disappointed and am intrigued as to what will happen in the final book...
