Although this book was quite enjoyable I couldn't help but notice that the plot was a little thin. I mean why would an entire cities well being be placed in the hands of the god Tyr. I don't understand how one magical artifact could be soooo important. Another problem was the excessive use of Illusion spells against undead and that they acctually worked against undead (I always though undead are immune to illusion spells). Other than that it was a very good book I like what happens to Miltiades (you will see).
