I felt like this was a great clever book, but it didn't reach the hype that it left in my mind from the last book.
-Spoilers- A huge portion of the book was with the character Qibli, and his journey around the kingdom of sand. Not much of it was dealing with Darkstalker, the main villain in the book, and which we so felt hyped for. It seemed so effortless to break Turtle out of the prison and to, later on, stop the fighting between the Nightwings and the icewings. I felt like Qibli was very clever throughout the story, and the characters are really well developed. I still would recommend this book. Another gripe for me was speculation, throughout the series you'd speculate on what would happen next. You'd stay awake at night wondering what would happen next. However, this didn't quite show in the book. Still a solid book in the series.
