The first four books of the series all lead up to this, and the payoff is terrific. The character development feels earned, the darkness of war is balanced by the truly happy ending (no, I don't consider this a spoiler--would you think a series like this would end unhappily?), and it hits on some of the favorite themes. A wonderful end to a wonderful series.
