Ubtrent has compiled another crowd-pleaser with this fourth title in the Dark Pilgrim series! The exceptional writing incorporates rich, vibrant details and imaginative, note-worthy characters. Confusion and chaos rule – each character starts out with a firm purpose but is forced to adjust quickly to deal with unexpected complications. A subtle touch of humor pervades; a large, insectoid assassin frustrated with his error thinks, “It was enough to make him molt right there on the spot.” This transitional book has a little less action than the previous volumes but is jam-packed with information and the plot twists will make any reader of this series gasp with delight and shock. Ubtrent has a first-rate ability to weave multiple sub-plots throughout the series, each of which branches into additional scenarios. His accomplished introduction of new, distinctive characters as preceding ones meet their unexpected demise continues to enchant this reader.
