This was a very enjoyable read in the fantasy genre and I hope to read the next two books in the series.
Good story but...
I enjoyed the story but was very frustrated with the writing. It seemed overly simple and lacking in observation. See Patrick Rothfuss for great fantasy writing.
I’ve read all the books in the series. All 9. And I freaking love them to death! I’ve read and reread them over and over.
I can’t get enough of it.
