I am so very sad that this trilogy is now over. It is easily my favorite series of the past few years, even beating out the stuff Brandon Sanderson has been releasing.
This time the book follows Sigrud, Shara's old partner, as he goes through several major cities of the world where gods once ruled before they were murdered. Sigrud says he does only one thing well, cause violence. Without the help of the Cerebral Shara, Sigrud must fall back on his old spy-craft and his tried and true skill to combat an ever darkening enemy. Alone so much, he meets up with two young girls and the reclusive richest woman on the continent. These meetings means he has to come to terms with all the misfortune around him and that he can apply his one talent to the benefit of others.
There are some old faces that show up like General Mulagesh, but they are all getting older and older as a decade or more has gone by since City of Blades. This is one of the things that makes this series so amazing. It doesn't fall back on the familiar characters who have already had their growth. It introduces new ones that fit so well.
This book is a touching and exhilarating end to the series that I enjoyed so much. I still recommend it to anyone who wants a breath of fresh air in the sea of steerotypical fantasy or convoluted history books that GRRM made popular.

This book is so good. I didn't want it to end. I love all the characters, they are very well written. Along with strong female characters that don't fall back on common tropes. Bechdel test: Passed
