I did not expect to love this book so much. I read the previous three and thoroughly enjoyed them, but this book was just a pure joy to read. While books one to three are somehow very dark and twisted, this one -even though it centers on an assassin priest- ist just filled with so much life and humor that it stands in stark contrast to the rest of the series. I didn’t want it to end and highly recommend it to anyone.

I refuse to give any book that's 700+ pages and doesn't give a bunch of closure 4 stars. I don't want to "encourage" that as the standard. I don't want to devote my entire reading life to one series. Back in my day we had novels that were 300 pages and told an entire story, and we liked it!

Seriously though, the writing was great, but EVERY SCENE was too long. I loved the characters, but I think that comes from reading 100's of pages of character development. I want to love characters with 10's of pages of character development spread throughout a story. It was the worst at the end when I was hoping for resolution and the flashbacks and introspection started happening (again) and then I got nothin.

One other problem. Gwenna Sharpe is basically invincible.

Rat was my favorite character. The narrators were great on this one, especially enjoyed the Rat voice.

The vocabulary in this book was just... *fans self* ... SEXY!!!

In addition to a number of well-developed characters and a dynamite story, this thing had a depth I rarely get to enjoy in a fantasy book. I love the idea of exploring the human capacity/capability through several sets of eyes, all to which I can definitely relate. This thing has swords and monsters and princesses and assassins and everything that makes readers of this genre LOVE the genre, plus a bit of crossover for exploratory readers.

If you are a lover of fantasy and/or new words, definitely read it!
