Here is the thread for posting about S&S part three.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Just read about Kacha's first assassination, and more proof that Dom is someone other than he claims to be. Good stuff. Given a priest is now feeding Kacha rumors about Vocho, I expect we'll see a wedge driven between them very soon.

Just got to the reveal of Dom's identity (I think - it still could be misdirection); didn't even come close to guessing the right one. There's not a huge shock value to it for me though, probably because it wasn't treated as an important mystery.

Still feeling that there are too many interludes. Each individual chapter is good fun, including the flashbacks, but they cut the narrative up into chunks that are far too small. Never long enough to get any momentum going, so I'm still putting the book down after every chapter.  :-\
I wish the world was flat like the old days, then I could travel just by folding a map.

Just hit 72% in the e-book (midway through Chapter 18). Still cruising along at a good pace.

I'm enjoying it mostly but I'm having a hard time with kacha.
