    Honestly this was terrible. I could not wait for the book to end. That this is the leader of the top 100 is a disgrace. That it doesn't even show up in the user top 100 is quite telling I think.

    I loved this series. It's not exactly fast paced, but there is rich and beautiful character development, and a very interesting take on magic. I felt a genuine loss when the series was over because I missed the characters so much. At least read the prologue of this book, and you'll know if you'll enjoy the series.

    The Long Price Quartet is one of the most literate fantasy series I've ever read. The evolution of the main character from a young, rebellious teenager to a mature and thoughtful ruler is done with grace and empathy. An outstanding series beautifully written
