The characters and the interweaving Of plots.
I don't think so
I am halfway through book two and very disappointed that there is apparently no book 3. I have never bestirred myself to write a review. That should say at all. The books do drag at some points but what do you expect from a book that is over 40 hours long? Get past the first few chapters and I believe you will be captivated.
It took a while to really get what was going on and which characters to get invested in, but it was worth it. This book is fantastic. it's going to rank up there for me with wheel of time, sword of truth, and Lord of the rings. can't wait to get into the 2nd book of the series.
Simply great story telling, excellent narration. One of the best stories I've heard in a long time, exceptionally original and powerful.
