also, always, the protagonists seem to take forever to figure out what's going on, or perhaps that's just because there'd be no story otherwise, or because the powers he's learning to use and the story are duplicative of what goes on in the the lord protector's daughter and lady protector, or vice versa, which i happened to read first. and, some of the powers she has he never develops, such as flat out invisibility or a shield. of course, if he had that, half the story would be gone, as he'd never get injured or have to worry about it much.
it was just frustrating as he inches along, finding things out, but i guess that's the story development. important, i guess, to take the time to tell us about the baby's full diaper.
also, it seems that the lying and secretiveness is excessive. (in the l. p. daughter, as well) perhaps when no one knows what's going on at all, that's one thing, but when it's become clear to his supporters that he has powers or other things are going on, why not just say stuff's going on, i can't go into detail, and you don't really want to know. the lying seems to me unnecessary, and cuts into the character's altruism. it's a character flaw.
also, i'm trying to figure out, but not badly enough to really recheck the years or whatever, if this story happened before or after the lord protector's daughter, chronologically speaking. originally, i thought it was hundreds of years earlier, now i'm not so sure, or if the incongruities or lack of continuity were because the author didn't think originally that he would be writing the later books. example, here, the lord protector's palace is built apparently by the people in these books, but in the l.p. daughter, it's a building of unknown purpose (which has some significance, like the green towers, which is never explained) left over by the ifrits. also, i'm waiting to see if they rebuild the table in tempre by the end of this story. actually, i guess there's some more volumes in between that i haven't read yet, so maybe i'm being premature. which may explain about the soarers.
trying not to reveal too much in giving my thoughts.
oh, one last thing, a lot of typo's throughout - all three books of this sub-trilogy. one example, calling the regent the matrial, and other such stuff, but i guess that comes when you're writing a prodigious amount of stuff in just a few years. can't he have better editors?
and, overall, despite the complaints, great read. enjoyed.
Strong characters that are well rounded and real.
