Broad, sweeping epic. Full of palace intrigues and succession battles. Politics, loyalty, love and hidden magics. Despite the length, many threads left unraveled to be taken up, I am disappointed to say, in the sequel.
This is an epicly long dreary peice of nonsense. There are no fully deverloped or likeable characters to cheer for. The story is full of drudgery. Where are the triumphs or the stellar moments of power? Here is the joke: The book was given the following review, "A masterpiece that soars with epic soul." Given by Ken Liu... aka another bad writer. This book does the exact oppostie of soar... it plods. The ONLY good thing about this mess is the narrator, Richard Ferrone. He did a great job with terrible material.
