I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Just as good as the first two books in the series! I'm not sure why I had such a struggle to get myself to read this--I knew I was going to enjoy it.
I should easily finish it this evening. The next person in the queue will get their chance on time (or even a little early).
