I honestly am at a loss for words about what I should say about these book.
So many people died and so many didn't(Miranda, Nakor, Pug(Kind of))
The ending was so sad yet so happy at the same time, although Hal being the king of the isles was quite predictable, I knew it would happen when he fell for Princess Stephanie.
There were A LOT of inconsistencies in the series, especially with the dread, although maybe I misunderstood what was happening.
About the dread(Please correct me if I'm wrong): At some point it says that beings in the 7th circle of hell are so much worse than the dread, however in the last book the dread are considered to be essentially the opposite of all other things so that nothing else can be more negative(or worse) than them and consume more.
(Sorry I couldn't explain that much better, although I am sure the Feist also had a lot of difficulty trying to explain the concepts in his novels, such as the 'mind')
I will add more later.
