This was a great read. The first half of the book moves relatively slowly, with our MC making his place in the Elven capital. New characters are introduced and Boxxy proves his guile. In the second half the tension builds as we move closer to the climatic conflict. As a climax it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Great action across multiple plot streams dealing with several powerful protagonists. I loved it. Overall I felt after a slight drop in quality in books two and three this one was right back up there - awesome! Bring on the shiny’s in book five!
