I did not like HH as much, I did not find Ingrey as resonant to me, 
though I really loved Fafa and his Prince ... I got an almost Fahfard 
feel off him. The first Fafhard I read was the one about the ice women 
... probably why I really liked him. I would really like to see a book 
about he and what happens when he gets home with his priest. I do wonder 
what the priest is like that went back with him! I hope he has warm undies!

I also didn't like it as much because it was not in the same timeframe 
as the other 2 books. There was sort of a disconnect there for me.
