Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman do a wonderful job in this series at leaving you wanting more. They have mastered the elements of their expertise to craft one of the best narratives in the Dragonlace setting with the Legends books and this book is no different.
My only complaint is pronunciations the narrator used for very common fantasy names. Especially the dwarven names. The pronunciation of Regar in particular struck my ire. I am used to hearing this name pronounced RAY-gar as opposed to the narrator's reh-GAR, but it is a rather minor complaint given the narrator is, overall, heads and tails over his compatriot fantasy narrators.
The narration was wonderful! The pacing made the story riveting, but not hurried. I especially loved the differences in pacing between different characters. It lended a sense of separation between character personalities that would not have been there with variance in voice alone.
Absolutely! In fact, be warned that you will most likely avoid tasks that will not allow you to continue reading. There are very few points in this book where you will feel like you can stop for a few minutes. When you do make a break, you will be thinking of when you can return to the book.
