Son to CI Syn and Seax Shahara Dagan, Devyn Kell has everything: trained as an assasin, a filch, heir to his parent's shipping empire. Dang, the man even plays the piano. So what gives? The man gets into the league (heeellllooooo!!!!! Haven't you read the earlier novels? Did he ever listened to his parents and uncles rantings about the bad bad league?) and learns that the league is not about protecting the innocents. (big DUH!)
Anyway, the man ditches the league (and the people from his unit! -For that alone he should be sent to whatever works as Gaul in that universe-) and now he is some sort of Robin Hood.
Enters the dispossesed heroine Alix Garran, bent by the big bad into a weapon for getting Devyn into jail. We meet the kids from the heroes from earlier novels, problems get solved, boy gets girl, ho-hum.

It just seems like there were just too many convenient "facts" that were thrown out there and you had to accept it for what it was. There was no depth; and the deux ex machina at the end had me screaming bloody murder.

One last thing:
How did "manwhore" Caillan Dagan become an Emperor?? Did I miss something???

I'm a huge SK fan, but I didn't like this installment as much as the first two of the League series. I liked it, just not as much. I think it is because there was too big a skip between Book 2 and this one.

Devyn is such a sweetie. Love him and Alix together. Paden surprised me at every turn, I would have never guessed the kind of character he became.
