If you have read the previous two books, well, then you'll already know that she isn't a ghost telling a story. Though that would be kinda cool. If it was done well.
Back to the book.
I did like Yelana, a lot, in the first book. Not quite so much in the second, and the same in this one. Maybe the book just isn't as tightly written as it could be, I'm not exactly sure what isn't as good as it was. I guess I just found somethings a little too contrived. The distancing herself from others for example seemed a bit forced in there. It could have worked, it is something that would fit with the character, but it just didn't ring through for me while I was reading it.
That being said I did still enjoy the book. And if you've read and enjoyed te first one there is no reason you wouldn't enjoy this either. It is a quick entertaining read. It isn't grand high literature, but who wants that when you are settling in to enjoy a nice adventure of a story?...Continua
