This book is on par with the second in the series. I do find the style of writing interesting. What I will say though is that when I examine how this story works, it's really quite amazing. I think that most readers that have gone through the whole series would conclude that all the books feel more like one book instead of just a part in the series. I found myself thinking back at certain parts and had to think, was that in book two or three. While I like George RR Martin a lot more, I will give this author credit. If you've made it this far, I implore you to analyze this work as a whole. As I've said in my other reviews, I really didn't care that much for the first book and I could see a lot of readers stopping there and can't blame them. I read in another review that one reads Gene Wolfe for the prose. I believe that to be true but I also think it's his ability to make everything fully seemless. So I do think the series was worth it but do not blame you if you're on the fence as to whether or not you want to continue. Everybody's style is different and sometimes it's good to challenge yourself and got outside your norm. This was one of those cases for me and I can honestly say it didn't disappoint.
