The depth of the characters, the continuation of stories and events from previous books so effortlessly combined with a new story of exploration.

The descriptions of the world. I actually bought this book before the first of the series by mistake, and while it referenced the events of the first book it is a great standalone on it's own.
Besides its length this is a great listen and I've found many a time that I am still listening long after I expected to move onto other activities. There are logical dips in the action but the story moves along and the descriptions are rich and vibrant.
