I don't know why I remembered this one being my least favorite of this trilogy... it was more exciting than I originally expected. I liked Kechara's role - the murder and intrigue was fun too! All in all, this is a fun series. I remember quite a bit about the next one, _The Silver Gryphon_. That's the one that revolves around Skan and Drake's children. I think I still like the first one the best, but this one is certainly just as good!
