Readable but no masterpiece,

This review is from: Enchantment's Reach (Kindle Edition)
This is a fairly well written fantasy novel but I really cannot understand the rave reviews, as I felt there was nothing outstanding. The main characters are interesting but not deeply emotionally engaging, the plot moves slowly and (yuck) - it has a sex scene (no, not like in Game of Thrones which would have been OK - more like chick lit).
There are really only two main protagonists, although to be fair, the author has given us both a male and female hero/heroine to follow. The other characters in the book are less well drawn, although some of this is due to the fact of the plot which means the characters have to be more mysterious. There is a reasonable multi-layered plot (which I won't go into as there is no point in spoiling it) - it moves fairly slowly as some of it is about political intrigue but there are other faster moving parts to keep your interest.
I did enjoy this book and I bought the next instalment but it is not some special masterpiece. My only other comment would be that you really do not get a lot of book for your money - each book is quite short for a fantasy epic.
