That said, it did keep me going, despite its intimidating length. But after finishing, I have decided I may continue the trilogy, regardless of how formula the players are.
Most of the action of this fantasy novel is political, supported by threats of battle, occasional sword fights and assassinations. They wolfbpade all fully fleshed out characters, with strengths and weaknesses. I’ve already reserved book 2 of the series at the library and I will read other books by her as I continue my wait for the next Game of Thrones book.

In a lot of my reviews I mention pacing. Enjoyed it as much the second time and while I remembered some stuff, I’d forgotten enough that the reading was almost like new. There is no “outcast” male romantic interest or kind noble women whose hearts goes out to wolfb,ade poor etc. So overall, I really enjoyed the series.
That’s because pacing is a key element in what makes me love a book rather than just like it. I loved being able to learn the backstory to Damin Wolfblade even if it did not really involve him yet because he was just being born. Fallon isn’t afraid to take a number of plot twists that will blow your mind, and I love her for it. Most of the pages describe family members and their ties to the imaginary country of Hythria.

I loved the way the story follows Marla and shows her maturing with each event in her life, in a realistic way. This book was incredibly wonderful. It had this wonderful fantasy feel but also that political aspect that made me love Elantris. It was an enjoyable read, but entirely too much work, especially when you moved over into the different countries and had more political factions and motive to deal with.
It’s not as dark as the Kushiel trilogy, nor as bleak as the Farseer Trilogy, but it has that same quality of “things happen and people are as they are”.

I loved how the main character goes from romantic, naive princess to an incredibly powerful woman who knows that sometimes you have to do things that are not necessarily on the white side of the spectrum.

And even though, Marla is clearly the main character, she doesn’t carry the bulk of the book. The character noble surnames all seem to have some sort of animal, followed by a weapon – “Hawksword”, “Eaglespike”, “Wolfblade”, “Lionclaw”. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
