'It came to me then, like a chilly draught from an unseen gap that I had always known in my deepest heart that it would be like this, a slipping away from a life full of people I had come to love, in a place I had helped to shape, in a land I had helped to free.'
The time has come at last for Elspeth Gordie to leave the Land on her quest to find and stop the computer machine Sentinel from unleashing the deadly Balance of Terror arsenal. But before she can embark on her journey, she must find a lost key. And although she has long prepared for this day, nothing is as she anticipated.
Elspeth's search will take her where she never thought to go, and bestow upon her stranger companions than any she ever imagined. It will lead her far from her destination to those she believed lost forever. And it will test her, as she has never been tested before....

But nothing happens
Just a bit disappointed, Elsbeth does not really further her quest, considering the length. I am looking forward to some more action in the next instalment.

Unnecessarily too long with too many boring parts
I thought the first three books of this series were great, but the only reason I'm still reading these is because I have to know how it all ends. These latest books in the series are filled with long, unnecessary and boring chunks of information and soliloquising, unless you're the kind of reader that enjoys reading page after page of someone thinking to themselves. Make that overthinking. It's starting to read like a neurotic diary. Far too much is over-explained in the narrative, as though readers cannot join any dots themselves, or as though we need constant reminding of what happened in previous books. If the repetitive information is for the sake of new readers starting the series at this book, then they really should just go back and read the other books first. It's disappointing to see a series with a good premise and plot get dragged down by monotonous narrative. I really don't need the main character thinking about something from every possible angle for three pages, and constantly mis-interpreting everyone's actions, especially her bond-mate's, just get on with the story. I also wish so much that this weren't narrated in first-person; the story could be so much more dynamic if it weren't completely through the eyes and mind of Elspeth, and pages and pages wouldn't have to be wasted on her being told what happened by another character who was there. Ugh. Such a pity, because there actually is just enough interest every now and then to keep me from giving up on it completely. I'm dying to know what happens to Dragon.
