Review: With Balance this series is back to its best. The book is varied, a lot is happening, but it’s easy to keep track of, characters are having to make hard choices which seem plausible based on how they’ve been built up so far in the series, and nothing feels too predictable.

Of course, there are tendencies toward clichés now and then, and dialogue especially can feel a little exposition’y in an action-film kind of way, but that’s part of the package with these books. Balance was exactly what I expect and want from these books - a whole lot of easy, relaxing, exciting, fun.
