Having the prince safe again, Queen Kettricken is again in a position to go further with her plans to marry him with Elliana, the Outislander princess.

Robin Hobb is a promising fantasy fiction writer and managed to give another sensational novel in the series. The writing and quality of the characters are just magnificent. The narration lacked quality and that could have been a lot better to further please the audience.
