The Slog of War
“What happens next?”
“How am I supposed to know? I’ve never been in a war.”
“But we’ve been here for three hours at least. And we haven’t eaten a thing.”

This book is the fourth and final book in the series, and unfortunately I haven’t read the series. But judging from the opening chapters— available for free as a sample for your Kindle— even if you haven’t read the series, this final book can hook you all on its own.
Often a series book other than book one tends to begin with long, boring summing-up of what has gone before featuring telling-not-showing. Or else things that make a reader of the first book weep, but leave the new-to-series reader confused as heck. This book is not like that.
Andrew Peterson skillfully introduces us to the book’s characters and situations, usually in the course of interesting action. I found it compelling and often amusing.
