if your new to fantasy fiction there is definitely worse places to start than this
7 March 2016
It was ok felt a bit rushed in parts, but as it was written as episodes I can understand why. The main character is quite likeable, if your new to fantasy fiction there is definitely worse places to start than this, (easy to read) I don't want to say anything to negative about it as its the first in the series and is just setting the scene for the story. have just started the second book and that's already much better written as is often the case with a new trilogy. If your a veteran Fantasy reader of Robert Jordan, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, etc... this first book may seem a bit tame.
If you've read the painted man trilogy by Peter V Brett than the writing style between the first and second book is very similar.
