My favorite part of this book was the characters! There are many great secondary characters in this series who I wanted to know more about but they were not pivotal in the story. Luckily, that is true no longer. I was excited that Brin played a major role in this story and from reading book three I knew that Tressa was going to have a major part to play as well but I never expected that I would come to like her character in any way. I love Roan and Gifford’s characters so much and their part in this book made my heart happy.
In addition to great character development there was also dramatic tension, battles, betrayal, and an against all odds quest that took place. Who doesn’t love a band of people heading off on a quest with an unknown outcome
