By "acmeaqua" on Feb. 10 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've been following the Sembia series and have enjoyed all of them so far, but some more than others.
After reading Tazi's story in Halls of Stormweather, I figured her novel would be typical theiving stuff, with her jumping from rooftop to rooftop. To my surprise and pleasure, Tazi did a little more than that!
This tied up the loose ends from Halls as well as some dangling items from Shadow's Witness quite nicely. I like the way Tazi is shaping up and hope she'll be around the Realms for some time to come!
I would recommend this to everyone reading the Sembia Series and even those who aren't!

I've gotta agree with the other review that this book isn't as gory as some of the other FR books, but it was thrilling anyway!
Tazi finally has herself back together and everybody better watch out.
I was glad that most of the family wasn't in the story very much because it would have been hard for her to do what she had to without all of them trying to lend a hand. And this was something Tazi had to do alone.
While I didn't get everything I wanted out of the ending, Ms. Whitney-Robinson didn't cop out with a Hollywood one.
Definitely want more of her!

I've been waiting for this story since her debut in Halls of Stormweather and was not let down. Not as much hack-n-slash as some FR books, but good nonetheless.
Without giving away too much, Tazi goes on an extended trek to save her friend and herself. What she finds at the end is not exactly what she thought she would.
I think Tazi is becoming my favorite female FR character, right behind Arilyn and Storm Silverhand. It's hard to find good books where the main protagonist is a girl, but Tazi holds her own.
Hope to see more of her!

By Carrie Johnson on April 10 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book had some real potential, but it sort of de-railed along the way. While it has a great start and a killer villain. However, once Tazi leaves Sembia the story goes from great to mediocre. A once greatly malicious villain turns into your average nasty schmoe and the novle just degenerates into a standard hack and slash unbtil you get to the end of the story type book.
While not bad, this is definately the low point in the Sembian series, which means it is still good, just not as good as the rest of them.

This feels like a short story which has been stretched. Not enough happens, and as has been remarked, the villain is not terribly credible. The plotting doesn't hang together all that well, while the description of Calimport will seem a bit uncomfortable to those who visited it in the company of R.A.Salvatore. Is this the city ruled by Pasha Pook?
The character of Tazi is interesting, and I'd been looking forward to this volume. It's OK-ish. I'd just hoped for something more involving.

I have to agree with the majority that have posted here when I saw I really liked the book. Sort of funny to read the review before mine, though. I always laugh when people have some critisim of another's work when they can't even bother to check their own spelling. :)
Tazi gets herself back together, but...spoiler...I sort of wonder what's going to happen to her as she loses those closest to her. Should be an interesting journey for her.
Eagerly waiting for Tazi's next story!
