A Conspiracy of Kings: NON-SPOILER version

I just finished my first (but by no means last) read-through of A Conspiracy of Kings, the fourth in Megan Whalen Turner's series (which, for the record, I now think should be called the Basileus series). Since I know people out there are trying to avoid spoilers, this post will be a very general non-spoilery one. The next one (with an lj-cut) will be chock full of spoilers.

I LOVED IT. Okay, yes, it did leave me wanting to read the next book now, but still. LOVE. Sophos has grown so much as a person, and I loved that his sense of humor and Gen's are so entirely different, and yet they mesh so well. I loved several of the minor characters and so many of the major ones too. I don't think I was left unsatisfied, or even exactly with questions. It's more that I have a sense of story not yet told that I didn't have at the end of the previous books. I can't wait for the next installment.

BASILEUS!

Heh. I didn't really think of this as a spoiler but I suppose it is.

Oh, no, definitely an unspoiler.

Now I've read it, I definitely think your point is sound, too! I *wanted* to know that before starting. ^_^
