  As a middle book The Sword of the Lictor is incapable of standing on its own, and, as with Severian, for every answer the reader receives, another one or two are raised. The thing about it is, even if Wolfe fools me and leaves me hanging, and all remaining secrets unrevealed, I don’t think I’ll care.
