At the time of this review, only one other person has reviewed this book. I am not sure why as I consider this 4 book series in the "classic fantasy" category. I found this series by going through this book list:
As many fantasy series go, this is about disparate group of people forced together by circumstance, but all driven to save the world in a time of war. The story is narrated mostly 3rd person, but also from first in sections. We also get to know the enemy that humanity is fighting against, but it seems as you go through the story that the war is really a plot by a shadowy overlord. This series is unique because of Irvine's tempered sexual scenes, evident love of geology, and clever page-turning twists.
If you are eager to meet a diminutive girl whom doom follows and a new species who doesn't fit in their skin and a whole other crew of driven future makers, you will have fun with this series.
Maybe you can be one of the first 10 reviews!
