I thought it was going to give back story that was important to the Magiere and Leesl story. There was some intrigue with what happened to the Sages,..Show More » and the Guild hierarchy was interesting
no, very boring. Wyn is a boring, annoying character even when Magiere and Leesil were the main focus. I purchased this one thinking after In Shade ..Show More »and Shadow, Magiere and Leesil would reappear and I didn't want to miss important parts of the Magiere / Leesil story. No such luck. Wyn gets even more annoying and if this were the first book I read of Hendee's and the Noble Dead series, I never would have bought another. Wyn is simply a terrible character to build a three book series around. Princess Reyna was a much more interesting, enthralling character than Wyn.
