Read full description of the books:
The least compelling of the series so far. It's unfortunate that our protagonist, Moirin, so often contrasts herself to the Phedre, the heroine of "the old tales" (i.e., the first three books in the series). Phedre was a much more interesting character, and every time Moirin mentioned her, I thought to myself: "you're right, kiddo. You can't hold a candle to Phedre."
My problem is this -- destiny is boring. Phedre was interesting because we never knew for sure (even *she* never knew for sure) what she was supposed to do in any given situation. She made choices, and dealt with the consequences. Moirin, on the other hand, has a built-in moral compass (or Destiny-o-Meter) in her diadh-anam. Difficult decision? Moirin consults her diadh-anam. Does the morally correct path fork left or right? Moirin has a vision of the Great Bear Herself walking one direction or another. Does Moirin love Bao? Let's see what the diadh-anam does in Bao's presence. Should Moirin seduce Supporting Character Number 53? If the Bright Lady smiles at the idea, why not?
Also, it was a bit preachy, in the "Moirin is tortured by evil priests" and "Moirin goes to India and catalyzes massive social change" storylines.
Will I read the next one? Of course. But my expectations will be dialed down, way down.
