SilentGunman's Thoughts:

Wow. After five superb books in this series, the ball is completely dropped with Inferno. Part of the problem is that this book really feels anti-climactic after the ending of Warbringer. Another is that the narrative doesn't flow as well as the previous five books. And the ending to this book just really angered me, because it was a serious lapse in judgment on the author's part to have a cliffhanger ending. Inferno is a massive disappointment for what was a really good series. Get this if you want the complete collection, but don't expect a satisfying resolution to the story.

Errata:Erratum for the Original British edition:
There is a correction to the pathway in this book.
At the end of paragraph 420, if Cassandra's sword had not been captured previously, the player should turn to page 424 not 423.
Special Thanks:Thanks to Ryan Lynch for the British cover images.
