So yeah, the idea of an 18-book series is a little off-putting, especially as this book seemed awfully drawn out out as it was.
Of course, I love a hefty book and I could appreciate the pieces of this saga being stacked like Lego blocks. World-building needed the foundation, the diverse characters forming an unlikely band to perform some great feat, but in many places the obstacles seemed like overkill. I even thought about bailing at the prologue because 1) the font was atrocious, 2) it was as boring as the bible or memorizing dates in history class, and 3) prologues are lame and I much prefer to have everything revealed naturally as part of the story.
Thankfully, I persisted. Our band of unlikely heroes quickly grew on me. By the end, I even cried over a few of them.
So many villains, though, and I wish the editing had been better as far as typos, if not flow. There were some places I simply got annoyed with another bad guy and had to walk away for a bit (I'm normally one to chew my way straight through a book, so this is saying something).
Though there is an ending of sorts, there are a helluva lot of loose ends. It's more of a pause before the next leg of the journey, though a pause that refreshes. It might take another freebie before I feel committed to a full 18 tomes, especially after being burned by Game of Thrones. (I'm failing at my promise to myself to only read completed series, and I blame Brandon Sanderson for much of that...) Much promise here, though.
On the down side however the book ends with no end to the story and there are a lot of spelling errors. If I had known when I was starting that the story was part of a series I wouldn't have read it as I hate waiting for follow up books. I've done that too often with series that go on for years like "Wheel of Time" and "A Song of Ice and Fire", which I'm still waiting for the end of.
I deducted one star because of the lack of a finish and the spelling errors.
I recommend this book to everyone, be young or old.
