I am finding this book very heavy going. The writing is verbose, the characters are not appealing to me. Overuse of the word "expansive". No French person would use miles and yards to describe distance. They would use the metric system and say metres or kilometres. This is a common mistake in American writers but still irritating.
I really wanted to like this series, that's why I bought four, but I'm struggling to get through the first novel. There are too many characters and too little detail to endear them to me.
I will continue to read it as I hate not finishing a book but it's tough going.
