This book was hard for me to get into. For several chapters it felt like it was just dragging on. Then in the last part of the book the suspense started to build and that was when I started having a hard time putting it down. I was disappointed in the ending though, it felt as though Saul got rushed in writing it.

Good book, but too much like Comes the Blind Fury. Really, almost a retelling, rehashing the same themes although with a different outcome.
