It would have been better if Modesitt had left me wanting more. Her initial intentions start her on a path that lead her to commit more destruction than she ever wished or knew she could.

Typical to the series, yes, there’s a lot of riding and eating biscuits and bread, and discussions about whether or not she’s doing the right thing; killing hundreds to potentially save mill A conclusion, indeed, that ties up all the dangling questions, including if Anna will ever save her new nation from both internal and external conflict.

It is also tiresome the way every last thread must be knotted and tied off. My recommendation to anyone would be to read the first in the series and then stop.

The final chapter does include one of the more touching, less nauseating surrenderings to such feelings that I have yet encountered. What do you think?

To Do or Die. True, they’re legitimate complaints, and the series takes place over a fairly short time so it would probably be irrational to suppose the probl I didn’t like this book as much as others by Modesitt the Imager series is my favorite so far darksng, and while midway through I’d have given it a 4, by the end it was down to 3 or 3.

And now that she has the chance to make real change, she will do it, despite what tradition or the patriarchy demands. The excitment engendered in The Soprano Sorceress, ended up bellyflopping in the following two books of the series, which do not differ from each other significantly enough to even merit their own volumes.
