Victory of Eagles - Naomi Novik


I must admit the big battle at the end makes up for the part of the book that failed to hold my attention. It's probably the strongest finale Novik has written yet. It's not quite enough to make Victory of Eagles into a good read though. I guess it's a case of too little, too late. I also suspect Novik managed to get herself in trouble for the next book by forcing her characters away from the main action again but we'll see about that when I read Tongues of Serpents. Sticking to this book, I guess you could say it is neither the best nor the worst in the series. It's enjoyable, delivers what the readers have grown to expect but I didn't think it was surprising or outstanding in any way.
