A really good continuation of one of my favorite series, I only wish we had a book about the war Briar was in, instead of just jumping into vague details about it and me wondering if I had missed something. ( )

I like thick books. Really, I do. But I feel that the book could've used a little trimming. It felt like there were too many sub-plots, which usually just stalled the main arc's movement. I also could have done with fewer POVs--these seem to be Pierce's newest *shiny* writing device. (See Terrier for similar, but more restrained use.)

But despite the minor quibbles, this book is by far one of Pierce's best.

An excellent rounding out to the two previous Circle quartets. I do hope we get to see more of these stories, since there are still a lot of things to explore in this world. ( )

I just re-read this book. I really love the circle books with their odd magic. And this one was better than I remembered it. I have just taken it from 4 to 5 stars. I strongly recommend it. ( )

I was so disappointed with each of the characters... ( )
