After the Wicked King, my expectations were high, too high honestly.  That is not to say that this book wasn’t good it was. It was a satisfying ending to the trilogy, but I also would have liked a little more Jude and Cardan, and less time on other things I didn’t think were that important.  No offense Vivi but I don’t care about your romantic life at all.  

The story was good, and I liked the path that Jude went down.  I did feel like the ending of the Wicked King, while addressed, was not given as much attention as I would have liked.  I also felt like the Cardan was not as Cardan as he was in the other two books, and while I understand the reasoning, I still missed that Cardan.
