First book of the year, and wow! I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: no other author can compare with Erikson’s imagination and vivid imagery.
We return in this novel to familiar characters in the 14th army, and in the end it links up to Midnight Tides.
There were quite a few fast-paced scenes which Erikson handled excellently. The viewpoints jumped around every few paragraphs, making for a literary version of a Michael Bay film which presented a perfect juxtaposition of confusion, tension, and action.
This series is only getting better and better!
