If I could give this book ten stars i would!! It takes an amazing writer to be able to write not only a huge, epic story that is as good as harry potter or lord of the rings, but to be able to write characters that literally feel alive. I have never felt characters this real from a book. I feel like I know them and experience everything they feel along with them. I feel like one of the bondsmen!
This is an amazing story about friendship that brings up things that are universally true and yet I have never heard it before. I find myself thinking of things that were said or done in this story and using it as an example in my own life. Truly a wonderful piece of art and amazing storytelling.

First off, don't read Karhleen Woody's review until after you read the book, she unkindly included spoilers. I'm sorry I did before reading it. Now, onto my impression of this novel. It was definitely the best book of a great series. I couldn't put it down, and LOVED the many plot twists. There is a chapter that the author should have named 'revelations', it was a blast! The climax of the Nexlord series was spectacular. This is not just a good read, but one of my favorite series now. Book three really delivers. Final note, and I only mention this because of another review, this is a new Edition and has obviously been edited since Karhleen reviewed it. I highly recommend this series. I hope the author keeps writing!

I liked the resolution between the major Nexlords, but the whole Gedin issue was hard to swallow. It didn't mesh with the rest of the story for me. In fact, between that and all the grammatical errors, I just kept shaking my head in disbelief. This guy can write a story and overall I enjoyed it. I finished all 3 books, didn't I?
