Without spoilers, I will say I found this book more satisfying
than the previous two. Unlike the previous two, I think this one
stood alone, with a narrative arc that had a clear beginning and
end. Moreover, one of my problems with the previous two books is
that the magic structure didn't really make sense to me. In this
volume,  the metaphysics of the world all starts to come together
in a way which I found very satisfying.

The cry has been that when war is declared, all opposition should therefore be
hushed. A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could hardly be propagated.
... In war, then, as in peace, assert the freedom of speech and of the press.
Cling to this as the bulwark of all our rights and privileges.
