Your previous post praising the book was part of what makes me hesitate, DR2. I'll see after I am done with the hugo nominated works and a few others. thanks.

Saw this at the bookstore the other day and remembered hearing something about it.  Since it was so short, I grabbed it.  I'm about halfway through now; I enjoy it well enough... but at this point it feels like the book in its entirety isn't going to be much more than the intro to most fantasy series.  :dunno:

Finished it up.  I will say that I enjoyed it, but I think I did it no favors by reading it just after Red Sister and Grey Sister.  Armored Saint is quite good, but I gotta go with Nona Grey over Heloise.

Specifically on the book, my earlier post is still accurate.  I feel almost like this is the point we would be leaving the Two Rivers/Winterfell.  As much as I have felt weary of the doorstoppers like Oathbringer, it’s a bit surprising I would feel this way.  I think the book being only 200 pages makes it a bit short and we would have been fine with another 100.

Spoiler

Basically I see no reason the book couldn’t have resolved the conflict with Brother Tone’s unit of the Order.  

I thought the book was enjoyable and at just 200ish pages, it’s the perfect length to squeeze between a couple other books or to fill a gap if you know another book is releasing in a few days.

Yeah, that's how I felt as well.  On the other hand it was nice to be done with a book in such a short period of time.  I'll be curious if the sequels are just as short, or if they "grow in the telling".
