Great series but sad that lack of character development lets it down,
This review is from: The River of Shadows (Paperback)All in this series, to date, has gone from strength to strength and whilst it's a series that has done well on so many levels, it feels that it is the lack of character building that has really let it down. They're pretty standard fantasy fare and its been a great shame to have this overrule the sheer talent presented within. As usual the description and worldbuilding is magnificent, the prose outstanding and its the double dealing and politics that really sell Roberts work. If you can get past the character flaws then this is definitely a series that has made its mark on the fantasy world.
Finally add a pretty good authorly voice to the mix and its definitely something to pick up in my opinion, yes the characters have problems but it's the sheer passion and work within that make this a series worth pursuing for its engrossing nature as well as the cleverly woven arc within.

AMAZON BUG. This is a review of Book III (The River of Shadows) not IV (The Night of the Swarm). Has affected other reviewers too.
