I liked it. The story moves well. There is action, a bit of rough comedy, and the hero is suitably heroic at need.
My difficulty is that there were woo many people who reasoned logically and not enough who followed their passions. Having a few who think practically makes it easier to drive the story, but they need to have more fools as foils. While there were idiots, they weren’t loud about it. Even the crazy character (Mad Hazlet?) acted rationally. It felt too safe. Somebody needed to be more difficult to control than Jonn’s mouth.
I would be interested in a follow up novel. The world is interesting and I do like the MC. I just need him to have a better, more flamboyant supporting character.
