I was also mildly irritated that he took so long to give us even a hint as to what may have happened BUT all in all I loved the reveals at the end of the book and I already downloaded the next. Chainfire continues the story of Richard in his attempt to teach the people that their lives are theirs alone, that they can be free of the Imperial Order.

Here starts an adventure that will span lifetimes and worlds. He fumbles around, not really sure what he’s doing, strains, trying to force it, and then gives up.

Coming to the final 2 books of my re-read. There is so much unnecessary dialog in this book that basically just repeats the exact same things over, and over, goodoind over again.
