It was enjoyable, in that I enjoy how Weeks writes, but unfulfilling. It has middle book syndrome, or it is bloated, or it has some filler, however you choose to call it. There are parts that are exciting and advance the plot, but there is a lot of meandering, and some POV's that were puzzling.
As has been noted, it looks to be a thick book, but there is a recap at the beggining, which I like, and then there is , dunt dunt da, THE END.
The segue between the end of the book and the glossary might be the weirdest transition ever.
Like in the history of the written word.
Including pictographs and cuneiform.
It was just strange, as was the use of it as a plot device.
I could say more about it , but the abruptness of the transition left me with mental whiplash.
Oh yeah, he faked you out with the large appendix, glossary. It is 10% of the length
Honestly, nothing major happens, at least not like the last books. The last books had me turning page after page after page for more information and details, but this book, goes nowhere. Kip is in some big battle that is pretty uninspired and unimportant. He meets some new friends who have "powers" of their own, but they aren't described in the richness that I am accustomed to in this series and I didn't feel the connection with them. Mr Weeks also spends an absurd amount of words detailing Kips' and Tisis' troubles in the bedroom. Once again, this is a plot point that goes nowhere. Similar situation with Gavin, Karris, Teia, Liz, Andross. None of them do anything meaningful. Ironfist is one of the best characters and he is barely in this book.
Maybe he is saving everything for Book 5, I really don't know. I just feel like everything that happened this book is a precursor and meaningless. I am hoping it is the former.

Parts of it lacks tempo, and sequences concerning Gavin Guile is more "filling" than enything else.Read more
