    I think one of the things that this novel put forward is that the Empire as constructed when Surly assumes power was never her idea AND that she avenges a wrong as first priority even when there's better priorities to have.

    She had different ideas to go about constructing the Empire and Kellanved constantly wrong footed her. That somewhat explains the disarray and distrust we see in the main series.

    I don't think Surly ever had ideas of a empire. She was narrow to focus on Nap and revenge. She was caught up in Kell's broader objective and no wonder they had different priorities. She was focused on Nap and his ideas were bigger. It was just sheer opportunistic that she was third in line and Kell and dancer ascended.

    Blues was fighting the Adjunct with 2 schmitars in GotM. Here Blues had a staff fight with Surat and is a woodworker. Seems there is a disconnect.

    Did we see Ullara in the main BotF series? Or any reference to priestesses of Beast Hold?

    Pretty much every book in the series is worthy on it's own. I personally love MoI & TtH for their epic climaxes and what a writing those are. SE at his best. DG, MT and GoTM are epic on their own.

    How does his argument stand up against ASOIAF? Is there any single literary masterpiece book?
