At first I wasn't sure about Valek but I'm starting to have more and more respect for him. I'm not even half-way through yet so I'll have to see what happens.
Are the other books in the series as good as the first? Is it still about Yelena? I really like her character, she's so emotionally strong and very smart!
Valek killed the old King. Snaps for Valek. And I really like the Commander, too. Too bad his government won't last when he's dead...
The next two books, Magic Study and Fire Study (I think that's the right order...) are really really good. We get to see even more of Yelena and her skills (which I can't say anything about or I'll ruin thme for you), but I didn't like the 4th one, Storm Glass, vert much at all. Its also not about Yelena, and the story simply isn't as strong. MS and FS are still really good, though! Definetely read those next!
