The trilogy finishes, very quickly in my opinion. The problem I had with this series were the massive number of side characters, names/places/thing/positions in italics[which made them somehow special?] and he just wrapped everything up in 2 chapters. I was hoping for something a little more drawn out. Oh well. I’ll still be buying it.

sequel to A Secret Atlas. Very interesting, but crowded. Follows at least 4 different subgroups, can be a bit confusing. He took some from Eyes of Silver with names and some reincarnation ideas. Overall tho? Thoroughly enjoying it! Much better than his DragonCrownWar cycle.

instead of his medieval Europe type, we get a more eastern flavor, and some south american thrown in. Very enjoyable, but why do some main characters always seem to die? I didn’t enjoy that aspect.
