What did you like best about The Captive Flame? What did you like least?
I like how Aoth continues to be his awesome self. The idea of this unique sellsword company is what brought me to the series.
Would you recommend The Captive Flame to your friends? Why or why not?
No. The Haunted Lands trilogy was most excellent. I'm halfway through the third of this series and I find myself frustrated with how maddeningly dumb and jerk-ish the rulers of the lands are. The Brotherhood is routinely treated like some random band of thugs, but they are clearly several cuts above normal mercenaries. The series gets worse about this and later. Somehow the protagonists are...incapable of defending their points or bringing up valid information to leaders of nations. Meanwhile, there is literally some insufferable vizier of some kind constantly insulting them and filibustering everything they say while the good guys stand dumbfounded. A lot of trouble could have been avoided had Aoth told them to shut up.
Do you think The Captive Flame needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
It has four, and they're okay.
