Reviewed in Australia on 24 October 2018
This has the feel of a ‘filler’ as it follows the fortunes of two relatively minor characters (Chaol Westfall and Nesryn Faliq) who venture to the mighty empire of the Khaganate in search of allies in the coming conflict with the Valg and their armies, and also a cure for the crippling wound that Chaol suffered in the last book. There is little or no mention of any of the characters built in the previous books, and while there are a few secrets revealed I’m not sure that they deserve a whole book. As usual with SJM, the path of true love rarely runs smoothly but it takes a long time to finally run true. Do they find allies and a cure for Chaol? No plot-spoilers from me but SJM fans will guess the ending although there are a few twists and turns along the way – this is not the kind of grimdark tale where everyone dies painfully ever after…
