I read the Obsidian Trilogy and the first two books of that left me wanting to know the rest of the story. Many of the same ideas were rehashed in this novel but by now they are old and over used. Not only that, they really don't contribute anything to the book, except to provide an excuse to fill up some more empty space on the page.
The third book of the Obsidian Trilogy was a weaker ending to a great beginning. That book resolved everything much too quickly and neatly. It would have been much better to use these additional three books to continue the story after the second Obsidian book rather than just dropping the reader off a cliff in the third book. After doing that in the third Obsidian book there really wasn't anything more to write about. The Pheonix trilogy certainly illustrates that point clearly as it starts slowly and gets even slower in the second book.
If you really must read everything that Mecedes Lackey writes then go ahead and read this book. If you're looking for entertainment, something artful like the first two Obsidian Trilogy books or great writing then you should look elsewhere.
