i branched out and got a book i had never heard of and trusted the good review. i loved the characters, got into the story fairly quickly and cant wait to get the next book in the series
It up near the top. It's just fun. Simple but yet enough going on that's it's very interesting. After reading The Malzan series I enjoyed have something where the goal seemed to be entertaining.
I would compare it to the Mistborn series. Plenty of humor, characters you really like, and a story the has enough complexity that you don't feel your reading a young adult fantasy
I loved the bickering between Royce and Haden. It was interspersed throughs out the story and I loved. Always had a smile while they went back and forth.
Not really at nearly 20 hours. But I always looked forward to the next opportunity. It was very easy to pick back up
Starting book 2 right away
This is a good start for a series. The characters are all kind of comical in their own way. The plot is full of wonderful backstabs, plot twists and the occasional surprise. The spoofs of fantasy fiction are entertaining. The world is rich with myths and lore. If the entire series is like this then it'll be a truly fun time.
The story has lots of twists, which keeps it very exciting. The characters are great, and everyone has a mystery. The narrator does well with voices and pacing, but he has a couple of verbal missteps. Specifically, he will repeat short sentences occasionally (seems like he flips the page and forgets that he already said the previous sentence). Overall, great experience.
Love this series so much. It's fun and humorous, has lots of character depth and growth, and a great plot that moves. You really grow to love the characters and their plight.
I love a good story with classic fantasy world building, and characters who respond well to their environment. Beautifully written with great twists and enough unexpected plot progression to keep me excited for the next chapter and wanting more.
The author has done a great job giving the characters mysterious pasts and unique skill sets. He's also got a solid world history to build off of. Looking forward to reading the rest!
I would classify this as a fun read. Great sense of humor, really loved some of the characters. Even the politics intrigued me. But, and I don't consider myself a feminist, the character development of nearly every woman in the book involves prostitution or sexual assault. Not kidding. Really, Sullivan? Bad form!
Absolutely loved getting to know Royce and Hadrian. They have quickly become two of my favorite characters. The story itself was well paced and I was never bored listening to it.
