all intrigue and no action
to much angst, self doubt, pointless intrigue and no action all the worst points of the series squeezed into one book half the length of the rest
completely cut out this tale there have been gaps of centuries where this series starts three quarters of the way through the timeline, he could have missed this out completely and the series would have been all the better for it, this book started off slow and got slower where only the people who where not in a position to help could see what was right in front of their face and those that did have the power to help couldn't see it if their life depended on it, totally frustrating and even though the book was half the length of the rest of the series it was still twice as long as It should have been (imo)
no favourites even those who weren't totally despicable or complete morons weren't particularly note worthy
the whole basis of the story line was slow and turgid frustratingly obvious from the start with the repetitive nature of the way the lead character learns of their ability and how they go about strengthening it to the clichéd lord who is nice but blind to the treachery all around him, there's no saving it
if you hope to get what you had in the previous 6 books of action and adventure where talented commanders fight aliens to save the world from death or glory then you're in for a huge disappointment if credits are hard come by, either stop at book 6 or skip book 7 as it is a poor shadow of the rest of the series, clearly the author is running out of idea's
