Overall I think it was an amazing novel. I'm still not sure I like Etain's fate. That was the one point I didn't like.

Maybe it was because I was expecting her to get gunned down just before making it to safety (sort of your cliche "rescue ship waiting at end of flat open space, friends beckoning person to run faster, but character gets shot just before reaching ship and/or gets shot but makes it into the ship only to die shortly thereafter). It just seemed to me more like she committed suicide since she turns away from Darman and in essence just steps in front of a lightsaber.
Maybe I'll like it better the second time around.
I'm glad that there is another book coming out, if I had finished the book but it wasn't known another one was coming out I would be so upset.
