Perhaps, if I had someone to share the entire trilogy with. Alone, no... it was just too long.
The writer really fleshed out the wit magic and bond with the wolf to an extreme, which I was all over.
Its hard to choose, but I would say the character that I enjoyed the most was the Fool, even though hearing unexpected wisdom from Night Eyes usually had me pondering or nodding in agreement.
The end is just the beginning
This book takes a strange turn from the previous books. Though, I will say each book in the trilogy has its own feel to it. The first one is a coming of age in a world of political intrigue while the 2nd is more of Fitz trying to be the glue that holds everything and everyone together. And this book is that glue breaking, and the world falls apart almost compleately. This book crushes your hopes over and over and over again. At the same time, it introduces to ideas, and further fleshes out old ones. I will say this book is too long, and should have been split into 2 books, as the first half of the book feels like its own story..VENGENCE. While the 2nd half of the book is more of a quest to find Verity.
I won't spoil the end, but its a bit sad and a bit endearing. I will say I wasn't too pleased with the hero's decisions to how to live out his final days, but to each their own.
