  1. I think the problem I had with the twists especially Zuri and Glokta, were that they were set up way too much. Some subtle set up would have been fine, but it felt like he was beating us over the head with it. Like the Zuri reveal teases early in the novel were so over the top it felt like he was insulting my intelligence as a reader. He had enough subtle hints in the first two books that you didn't need to do any other set up of that twist, but he just piled it on. On top of that I think both the Zuri and Glokta reveals came so late in the book and were so obvious by that point that they completely lacked any impact. The only twist I thought was well handled was Leo taking over but I think the book lost a lot of it's steam and just kinda meandered after that.
