I enjoyed this one the most from the series. The story and structure seemed tighter, and suited the darker tone. We've had a dungeon crawl, a henchmen crawl and this book is the fall out as older and newer characters converge and OGD looks into some redemption.
Being said, it all goes pear shaped with an undead plague and wars of conquest become survival. Without giving much away, it has a darker and messier tone with consequences shown in blood.
Very enjoyable read and as always seems too short.
