I enjoyed the whole series, not high fantasy but fun reading. Seems to borrow from other writers. This doesn't bother me because he writes better than the other writers do.
While the auther writes extremely well, the story is very slow moving and morose. I just wanted the book to end.
Some people have said that this series is alot like the Dresden series. The similarity stops at the talking head both of the main charecters keep. Much more adult theme, the storyline is not predictable or politically correct, which is something I enjoy.
A long wait but Martin hit it again, One of the best living authers today.
If your a fan of complicated fantasy with blurred lines between good and evil, shades of gray and intricate plots(George RR Martin etc.) this book is not for you.This is something that someone might write for bad prime time TV. Shallow characters, basic love interest and all the good guys are politically correct. I think this would be good for teenage males who think the "twilight series" is too sappy. Lots of guns.
