I gulped the book down despite its somewhat intimidating length, and greatly enjoyed it.
Some of the things I've liked about the book:
- Fortunately for the readers - but perhaps more unfortunately for the characters - there's no 'happily ever after' following the big victory at the end of Forged in Blood II. Quite apart from the usual dastardly plots and deadly creatures who just won't give up, peacetime brings its own problems, and characters have to work hard to earn their happy ending... at least until the next book.
- As always, happy that the characters keep growing and developing in a natural way, not turning into perfect specimens of humanity over a hundred pages.
- There's continuity between books: events happen as a result of characters' previous actions, whether intended or not.
- Finally, for the sake of all of Turgonia I'm very glad the protagonists haven't chosen to follow the old Australian way of dealing with weeds, pests and the like, ie introducing another species to combat them that ends up being a bigger problem than the original one... although I'm sure it would have made for some entertaining sequels.
