Shelves: fantasy This story concludes the adventures of Rahl. Overall it was a fun read especially the last half of the book which is largely concerned with a military campaign which is some of what Modesitt Jr does best.
My major complaint is with the very minor romance subplot, and a few quibbles with consistency from the first half. Rahl does continue to grow in this story which is very nice to see. He still struggles with anger problems but as his powers grow he runs into less situations where his power This story concludes the adventures of Rahl.
This defeats his growth in a few situations, and he never ever learned how to recognize what it was in himself that was the source of the anger. With this unresolved I find it very hard to believe in his happily ever after. Especially, since the love interest is a healer and extremely sensitive to emotions of others. I guess she changed her mind when the story needed a happily ever after which feels like a cheat on the arc of both the characters.
I loved seeing the current state of the nation of Hamor. When we last left it was a mash of several competing kingdoms, one of which was founded by the refuges from ancient Cyad.
Now we see that the Cyadorans did consolidate the land and became the emperors of Hamor. They recreated a triad type of government similar to Cyad but reflecting the lower power of the mage classes. Each of those three triads further supported by their own allies, primarily traders. It was also fun to see a reference in the happily ever after section to Lorn, the long ago Emperor of Cyad. The minor quibble mentioned above is that after being obsessed with money during the first book Rahl seems to become oblivious to it in the second.
I am conflicted on how to rate this book. The next story takes place years later so we will see what happens to the Blacks of recluse, the Whites of Fairhaven, and the both-of-them of Hamor.
