This sequel picked up right where _Talon of the Silver Hawk_ ended. And as Talon of the Silver Hawk, or Tal Hawkins, developed, he became a stronger and more likable character. Some of the hardships he faced could have made this a much darker book, but lucky interventions in the same vein as the last book, kept Tal optimistic and surprisingly upbeat.
I wonder what will happen in the next book, especially considering the fate of the villain....
My favorite scene, though, was the shark/beach scene - such fun, and totally unexpected for a fantasy novel. I do hope that Nakor and other series regulars play a larger role in the next book! The series seems to be winding (or wending, as this seems to be Feist's new favorite word) down, but I remain curious to see where it all goes!
