(88)  Kushiel’s Legacy #9

Not the strongest entry in the series. Overall, I’ve enjoyed Moirin’s trilogy more than I liked Imriel’s, though neither holds a candle to the original trilogy featuring Phedre.  This was the weakest of Moirin’s three books, IMO.  Partly because it was lots and lots of travelogue leading up to the confrontation that was supposedly the purpose of the story, then said confrontation was resolved far too quickly and easily, to my mind.   I think the story lacked some tension that was present in the other because of Moirin’s married state — the tense romances are a hallmark of the Kushiel books and the tension was noticeably lacking in this one.  A decent finish to the trilogy, but all in all very wordy and the words were used on the wrong parts of the story.
