Great story, great characters. It's hard to beat that combo. And the author strongly hints that the story is going in one direction then he shakes things up. Loved this book (well 2 books).
Life is too short to read bad books.
One of the best and least confusing epic fantasies that I have read. Not only the characters and their backgrounds are well laid out and explained, the land and plot of the whole series are revealed in such a way that is relevant as the story evolves. Names are easy to remember, plot is easy to follow, with endless twists and intelligent dialog. The audio-book version is well read by Tim Gerard Reynolds,
Top of my list
Honestly so far none compare for me
Seriously one of the best books in a LONG time.
I read speculative fiction, YA, mysteries, entertaining nonfiction, & occasionally, heavier literature. I want it well written & literate.
Gripping story, solid protagonists, dastardly villains, courageous female characters, sinister plots within plots, adventure, humor and a wonderful reader. Thoroughly hooked and very much looking forward to more.
The story is excellent, with a few surprises and interesting tvists. The humour and the fantastic narration puts this on my favourite list.
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
This is a good fun fantasy story that you could read to your kids if you want or just enjoy yourself. This is nothing profound or too deep, but it's like watching a good action/adventure film.
Story moves nicely and the characters are rather likable. For what ever reason the narrator is a little bit annoying. His voice during dialogues is often irritating - to me.
