I didn't love it. 2.5 It was so long, too long and had so much going on it never felt focused. I love these characters, and felt bad for them, they were dragged through everything and the kitchen sink. Stuff was hitting the fan, well many fans from all different angles on high speed all the time. I was at 75% in the book and it was still pilling it on with no resolve. When I got to 80%, it took off like a crazed rat in a wheel, with all these elements jumping into the big finale. Oh it was tense, but I was just glad it was over. A major character dies and I didn't feel anything. I was not wooed into caring, like in the pervious books. I will continue for one more book in this series and hope for a change.
