Yes, Brian already reviewed this, but I read it too. As he mentioned, this is the fourth in the Council Wars series, and not actually as wonderful as the previous books. There’s a lot of character development, a little action, and a lot of setup for not-much.
I really hoped for some plot advancement, but it feels a lot like the author said “Hrm, my characters were starting to run out of resources and I’m not ready for the Final Confrontation yet. I’d better get them more resources so I have time to show off this whole cool world I have in mind.” I hope the next book has more Adventures in the Cool World.
