Post's a bit late, but hey, I just found it. :)

PS: Hodor. Hodor. HODOR.

I just finished that book and found it very well written. Everything else has to go into the spoiler tags. ;)

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm not sure if this is Young Adult anymore or rather "nearly grown adult". The topic of slavery is a severe one and while I applaud her for bringing it in, I find the side effects, like the killing of child slaves and disposing them naked on the garbage a bit extreme for YA. And there is a lot of killing of innocents, slaves, women and children in this book.
What maybe was more hard on me was Tunstall's treason. He's one of the main protagonists since book one and he had a lot of likable habits and a strong and good character.
I know I'm sometimes too empathic and I have a soft spot for (realistic) happy ends but this was not needed in my opinion. The book would have worked as good without one of the loved main characters turning traitor. What do you think?
