I definitely have to agree with all the other people who have reviewed this book. But I have to say that Kale though whiny was only that way for part of the book if you can even call it that. She turned out to be a strong person when it came down to when it mattered the most and that is what counts and I loved watching the relationship between Kale and Bardon mature as a married couple. The book was absolutely awesome and certainly tied up all the loose ends with some surprising twists. I couldn't put in down and finished it with much satisfaction but with some sadness as well since it is the last in this particular series. If you think this book looks awesome you should get the first four and start looking forward to the next series.
