I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
This was just okay. As the series is beginning to wind down, the story is becoming more formulaic. I would expect to see some of the characters cease to be pure good or pure evil by now, but so far, I've had no luck. Perhaps in the final volumes I will start to see more of this development.
