Is that about right?
Let me put it like this. The first half of Book 5 is a lot like Book 4 in that it deals with a lot of politics and several major characters whose storylines are picked up from where they left off in Book 3. The second half of Book 5 is somewhat more "action oriented" in that some of the storylines in Book 4 and the first half of 5 start to converge, but a lot of these things leave us with cliffhangers (which I won't spoil here).
Given your preferences, I'd either wait for the paperback or get the hard cover on amazon.
