I spent way too much time reading this book. It was well written. It had great visualizations an amazing set up. It also had not one admirable caricature and was EPICALLY disappointing. Imagine if you will: Frodo (from The Lord of the Rings) is all the way up at the top of the volcano ready to throw the ring of doom into it, after heroically trekking through three books and numerous people dieing, But before he can throw the ring into the volcano a big eagle swoops down picks him up and takes him back to the Shire. And then the book ends.
That would be the worst ending ever. And I can honestly say that this books ending is about that bad. I feel robbed.
