it first started of slow and was difficult to get through, but once the man character starts telling his story I was caught. there was times I started to listen while I cleaned and ended up just sitting down and listening for 2 hours straight.
This has been on my read list for a while, and I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner. It holds a firm place in between fantasy and high fantasy (in my opinion). I was a bit unsure of what I was getting into when it started but as it progressed I realized the finer points of the multiple plots. The characters have good depth and even better development, except for a few characters bat are just meant to cause trouble. This really sets up the universe but still leaves a lot of roam to add more, it teases what's to come in such a way where I can't wait to start book 2.
I find it a challenge to pin point what specifically I find so compelling, I just know I will be searching out this author's work for years to come. Thus far, the two descriptors I can pluck are bold humility and master craftsman.
I enjoyed the story overall however it was about 12 hours of story in a 20+ hour book. Took a few hours to get into it, though the story isn't all that complex. I'll still read the next in the series, as I feel I have invested so much time into a tale that is only beginning.
Lefted feeling lost without the story to listen to.
I have many questions, hopefully they will be answered if I can have patience.
