This journal of sorts sheds light on the ramifications for Minalan of the new personalities in his head, will they be helpful in his endeavours or cause trials and tribulations adding to the jumps and pitfalls that would inevitably show up round the next corner.
Yes, definitely read this book. As usual, there is literary brilliance to be had. But, do yourself a favor; pretend it says book 15.5, not 14.5. Unless you are the type to skip directly to the last page of a book, you will enjoy it far better AFTER book 15 than before.
I know why this book was written as a stand alone, it needed to be written, it needed to be read and listened to, and I enjoyed it mostly. But, that said, I am ready to move on and I am not getting any younger. I feel sorry for Minalin and his cadre at this point in the story, and I am ready for the ass kicking to come.
Terry placed the main character into different light by interacting in his mind with past figures. in my opinion he payed a grand for future discoveries in next stories. It was an interesting novel and good addition to the Spellmonger series.
But with the world expanding and now multiple books covering the same timeframe, I don't want to spend 15 more years on this series.
The story and characters are compelling, the philosophical musings insightful, and the world teeming. But I hope the next couple of books make great strides in moving the story forward through and well past the events mentioned in this novella.
