This has been reported constantly here, but the publisher has refused to fix any problems. The Penguin Group appears to be purposely sabotaging either these older series, or Mercedes Lackey herself.
I have 693 Kindle books in my library currently, and the only two books I have ever had lock up the system is this one, and the companion book, Oathbreakers. This review will appear on the Oathbreaker's page also, just as it is here.
I have requested refunds for these two books, because while I fully wish to support Mercedes Lackey, I will not support a publishing company that can't even listen to its customers in this fashion.
I'm not sure if you could say the two heroines here develop further during the course of this book so much as we simply get to see a lot more of who they are and what sort of women they've become after years of partnering and following a mercenary's life. Throughout the course of the novel we get to see in detail how they work, which is always to follow the motto of "fight smarter, not harder." Even when their own rage tries to demand that they take action *NOW* they don't give into it, holding onto their tempers, even if only by a hairsbreadth, and channeling their anger into productive activities instead of letting it control them.
I think I like this book better than the first one in part because of the story and in part because it's more cohesive as a novel. Where book one was composed in part of short stories that were edited together with some new material to form a novel, this has the feel of having been written as a novel from start to finish and isn't episodic as Oathbound was as times. As with the first book, I believe any fans of old school fantasy, particularly of the sword and sorcery type, would enjoy this book. It may be old, but it has stood the test of time well and doesn't feel dated at all, at least in my opinion. 4 solid stars.
