A unique variation on the theme of traditional magic makes the mechanics of this world fascinating. The book provides a solid foundation to the world without branching into long chunks of dialogue or exposition to keep the reader up to speed. Making a setting feel real and "lived in" from scratch is a difficult thing but this book achieves it effortlessly.The amount of description of characters and locations is deep enough to allow the reader to form an image in their own mind without burdening them with excess text to pour through. Some books go to extreme lengths in their descriptions and can bore the reader, sometimes less is more and this book does it well.
The characters are believable and relatable, they pull you into their lives and I never felt like I was simply reading characters in a book.Read more ›
The plot will have you gripped. You'll get excited every time another characters story comes around and disappointed when you're left dangling at the end of another's chapter.
I prefer a little more humour in my fantasy, but what it lacks in that the plot makes up for it.
Already decided I'm getting a powder keg tattoo .
The action starts in the first chapter and carries on throughout the series with lots of battles, sorcery and fighting alongside detective work, spies, traitors etc.
