This is the most complete, and most entertaining book in the series. Perhaps it's because how much I had come to enjoy the characters, storyline and Abercrombie's style. It's hard to tell. However, this is a great finale to a very good fantasy series. There really aren't any weaknesses to the book except that at times the characters dialogue has a very modern feel to it. The world building isn't fantastic, but alot of times getting bogged down with alot of semi-useless information about a setting doesn't help move the story along. I think any fan of the darker, more gritty fantasy series should give this series a try. It moves along fast and furious and comes to an interesting conclusion. Every main character is an anti-hero. I loved it.
