No spoilers, the plot is less story and more like watching the main character fall down a very long flight of stairs. There isn’t much of a mystery to unwind. Secondary characters seem incidental to the story rather than essential to the story.
My biggest gripe: every character has the same voice. From street urchins to mages to supernatural beings, everyone cracks wise with witticisms, sarcasm and irony. Even the one character who is supposed to be 'non-emotional' picks up wise cracks by the end. For this kind of humor to work there has to be a straight man. A wise crack cracks best when it leaves some unimaginative stick in the mud speechless. If everybody is witty and ironic, the characters begin to feel like the puppets of a witty and ironic puppet master. It's okay to have a comment fly over the head of a particularly dull character as long as it resonates with the reader.
In conclusion, should you read this book? If you have enjoyed the series, yes you should. It is still better than 80% of the books in the genre. It's well worth the read.
Looking forward to the rest of the series, and best of luck to Mike in his pursuits!
The previous book with the Holmgren's pov helped Amra emerge more fully as did Chuckles and now I am attached to the progression or sometimes regression of the characters and their foibles as well as their strengths.
Normally I dislike destiny, fate, and prophecy being integral to the plot of a story but it sort of works in this case because Chuckles is a fallible Weaver of fate and is self aware enough of that weakness to prepare as best as possible while not showing all the cards in a believable manner.
Basically if you weren't sure who Amra was it should be fairly clear who she was and is but still an open case on where she is going.

If you haven't read those yet, I probably wouldn't start here.
Hugely enjoyable book in an epic series.
Amra is a thief who has a knack of getting in to scrapes with criminals, demons, godlings and aspects of a dead goddess.
Book 5 see Amra taking the fight to the 8 fold goddess rather than been played for the fool. As usual things dont go to plan and it seems her enemy is always one step ahead of her.
Also what's happened to her luggage?
Great book and well worth the wait, looking forward to the audio book version too.
I wasn't expecting to love Amra as much as I've come to: she's a fantastically written main who doesn't fall into the bullshit tropes that seem to haunt female characters.
Every book is a gift and I actually wiggled when I saw that this chapter of the story had been released.
Hope there's more to come!
