I'm about half-way through. The writing style seems MUCH better than the previous book. No infodumps so far. Though I'm still not sure why, at this point in the Epic!!! fantasy cycle, I still need to read about two noblemen getting all hot and bothered from two beautiful princesses.
I liked the part where Feist finally gets the moredhel involved again, but I hated the part where he does it by totally messing up Gorath's backstory, and the part where he's again making carbon copies of characters - in this case, re-using the "moredhel turns renegade for the good of his kind" idea, only it's watered-down because it doesn't have the same poignancy now as it did shortly after The Great Uprising, and the offense of doing a carbon copy is even greater because Gorath was never his character in the first place.
We'll see how it pans out.
