Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Hereward’s mission really is to just delay the godling long enough for Kishtyr to show up and destroy it, so he’s successful at the end. There’s plenty of excitement in the big fight.

Con: Hereward’s real goal is to prove himself, and it doesn’t seem that he accomplishes that.

The reconciliation with Fyltak strikes a false note; the man is still a fraud.
