Wonderful book and outstanding ending of a great trilogy. This series is absolutely precious, with great plot and characters. I got hooked after reading the first book of the Riyria chronicles, which is also the first in chronological order, and I would recommend starting with it because, even though you can read them in publishing order, I enjoyed having no prior knowledge of how the future was going to unfold. The writing style is also much enjoyable and sets the story going at the right pace. I highly recommend this book and this series, and thanks to gr community and the author himself who piqued my curiosity and let me get started on Riyria. Also, don't miss the short story on "unfettered anthology", my very first Hadrian and Royce encounter.
