This was Chaol's book, but his sad whining sob of a story was shadowed by some fantastic new characters and an exciting twisty twist. Yup, I'm still not his fan girl. I just can't forget what a dumb twig he was. He finds some answers, and perhaps some happiness at least for a moment. Yeh, rah rah, meh who cares.
4 for the book the extra 5 was for the sexy beast known as Sartaq. I loved this character and his giant chicken. :P Another character that stole the book from Chaol was Nesryn, she is a force that made me stay up at night reading till just before dawn. I could have read a whole book with just these two and their adventures.
Finally we learn what the what is going on and who is who behind that mask. Finally, I am so excited, things are bad, very bad which makes for a very good edge of your seat read. The separated world is headed into a war that will out horror any previous wars seen, unless.... Oh I wanted to punch that face at the end- BAM !
Well Ms Mass, you tortured me yet again, bravo.
