This is not over my friends.
Yes! If you're a life-long fan of the Inheritance cycle like me, you'll be so happy and proud of this piece and how smoothly it puts you back to the centre of events in Alagaeisia. Murtagh is everything you remember him to be and so much more. The writing is close to the original books but at the same time more profound. The story begins in a calm slow burn mode and then suddenly before you know it, you're in the second half and adrenaline rushes through your veins and all of the mysterious pieces start falling into place. And I feel like the writing reflects this greatly. My point is, the beginning might be a little discouraging because it truly takes a while to unwind, but the end delivers everything you want it to. At the end, there is a note from Chris, where he promises Murtagh is anything but the end of his works set in Alagaesia. And without giving away any spoilers, let me tell you, the new villains and mysteries only partly uncovered in this book are amazing and fresh. Let's just hope that the sequel won't take another decade, but even if it did, I sure would patiently wait for it every day of it!
