As always Falco is amusing and entertaining but not much action or mystery. Figured out the secret half way through.
Thank goodness for Abercrombie a creator of real people and places unlike the usual heroic good guy fantasy schmaltz.
I have never read fantasy before but relying on the previous reviewers I bought this. I enjoyed it - I have only read the first book which appears to be mostly an introduction to the characters. The characters are well written - certainly not super human - though the plot is somewhat slow. I have now purchased the second book and look forward to a bit more plot.
When I was 14 [many many years ago] I loved this book. It has not however stood up to the passage of time. I found its depiction of female characters tedious and adolescent. Like a teenage boys fantasy.
