In the end I felt fatigued finishing this fourth book. When I read the third book about a year ago I think I was plagued by a few deja lu feelings. In this book, the symptoms are worse: we already know pretty much all the players, the important transformations and deaths have mostly all occurred, and the battle for Southmarch feels more like a siege. If you’ve enjoyed the series so far then by all means finish it off with Shadowheart; but, if you have been losing interest to date, in my opinion this book won’t redeem it for you.
