Maybe the plot is OK, but the way the story is told can scare one away for good. I gave up after 150 pages of a 600 pages long book. It takes forever to make a piece of information available to the reader. Example: it takes 40 pages of endless and pointless dialogues to tell a handful of details of the youth of the hero. The whole thing could have been said in plain and beautiful English, taking no more than 1 page, with no loss to the plot. With 40 pages of dialogues around it, the story just stalls and loses momentum. The same thing is repeated every now and then. It is a page turner indeed - you are just looking for meaningful moments in the book skipping all the "fill-outs". I found it not worth my time at the end. I will not look for another title of this author either. Not recommended.

I have the full 7 books so far in this series and would recommend it to anyone interested in well written adventure stories

It would be great if a leader could do this for his country. But he is still a great writer to tell a tale this good...
