Wow, the last third of the book was explosive!
Suddenly everything happened at once and though it was slightly too chaotic to follow, it was really exciting.
I loved Lightsong's character, and the banter between him and Blushweaver kept the first 2/3's of the book interesting when there was not much action happening.
That would have to be my biggest issue with the book. It was so long and it took forever to get to the excitement at the end that it was obviously leading up to. Having read some of Sanderson's other work, i had faith that he would make the wait worth it, and he didn't disappoint, but i still feel that the book didn't need to be that long.
Also, some of the storyline wrap ups at the end weren't very polished.I felt that there ought to have been more on them avoiding the war in the last chapters. The story didn't go back to Idris and the King at all so it felt unfinished.
So upset about Lightsong and Blushweaver! Sanderson always kills off my favourites! I did predict that many of the gods including Lightsong would die, but i was hoping to be wrong.
Vivenna's character really annoyed me at the beginning, being so judgemental and conservative, but once she started working with Vasher she started to grow on me much more. I'm glad we saw that character transformation with her. I also found their pairing great and hope that we get to read about them taking on Yesteel! The only explanation i can think of for the unfinished stories is that Sanderson is planning to do more with them in the future, where i think Yesteel will be the villian.
The ending was left open for a sequel, and i'm glad because i loved the magical system and the world! So different and unique! There's so much more to explore with it, i look forward to more T'Telir books which i hope are in the works. 3.5 Stars
