This book was great! All the settings were amazing. The only thing that keeps me from giving 5 stars is, near the end, when the four Kindred were helping Xairn, we didn't really get to see any of that action, and Deep didn't really play the pivotal role that I thought he might due to his vision in a previous book. Also Xairn I thought could have tugged at my emotions more than he did. But I loved it.
