Short read, didn't live up to my expectations
Unfortunately this read like a cash-in on the storyline set up by the last two books. Some really good moments, but linked together in a jumble that communicated no meaning beyond the words on the page.
Should have read the other reviews before purchasing. Short contrived ending. Not nearly as good as his earlier work.
Not worth reading as the end of the 2nd book takes care of wrapping things up as well as this does.
