And it did, seemingly until it got to about the 45% mark of the book. (Or until Archaon dies, spoiler alert...) Until that moment, the book was floating along nicely, flowing from chapter to chapter with ease, enticing the reader in with the character being built.
I realise magic exists in Warhammer, but someway, somehow, Diedrick teleports onto a boat, having died a page before, with no explaination as to HOW he got there, much less revived of his 'ailments'.
The book then took a marked descent into the madness of the wilderness, where the main character fixated upon directions and named individuals who hadn't been introduced until they'd died (???).
It got slightly better, frequency of Everchosen went up a notch, fewer names of random individuals not introduced until they died (!!!), and the story started progressing again.
Then around the 75-80% mark of the book seemed to focus far too heavily on 1 monster at the expense of seemingly any sort of story advancement and could've been quite easily chopped out, or shortened.
Last 10% was pretty good, as it returned to the initial pace of story telling, just with anothers perspective.
Overall, not the best book in the world, a long slog at times as the story progressed so slowly as to be glacial, but there are some standout moments within. The last part of the story of particular note if you make it that far.
