What I didn't like was some examples of amateurish narrative flow, such as sticking in a simple sentence like "It was good soup." The ending, though striving to be full of action, ended up being too basic and underwhelming, and I find myself having little sympathy for a culture who kills outsiders to keep a simple and self-serving secret--unlike the main protagonist.
The ending, while surprising, fits right into the story line and is a great setup for the next book.
The whole novel was about a prince who had lost his throne and was on his way to claim it. Circumstances kept getting in the way and he had to some business to take care of before he could continue his quest.
But as you reached the end and you think about it, you realize you've already read a whole story and the main character makes a decision you don't often see. I liked that.
