3.5 Rounding upIt wasn't as great as the other books from this serie. There was something missing, not as much witty banter as before I guess. Loved the ending though, did not see that one coming, was a great plan! Almost was shocked at first about what happened to Shane, but I actually got misty eyes when it was Myrnin's turn. Myrnin is just awesome and it just wouldn't be the same without him!
