This is the last book in this series. We're so glad, because what started out as an intricate story has shrunk to a story about a) Ari's problems with his wife, yawn deal with it b) Kiron's issues with his chick again yawn don't care and c) about the gods' wars and their relationships snooze. Now don't get me wrong it's a good book, but please! These books were originally about jousters who were fascinating warriors. Now all we have is romance and some pissed off up and coming gods and another new city. been there done that in quite a few of her books actually. It gets boring after a while.
