I’ve waited for this issue so long. I have loved the series, but this was way too long. Too any side stories. Most of the stuff about the Druids was convoluted and unnecessary. Shaving 200 pages from this book would make it both easier to follow and more exciting. I began to feel like a yo-yo back and forth from Rivlin to Sorath back to Malek and Jadora then to Tevi and Tivlin. Please Lindsay, tighten up the next story. I’m a loyal follower, but even loyal followers can get jaded.
