What a joy therefore to read this great series. Actually 4 books but published (in timely fashion) in 2 volumes. The story is set in an elegantly crafted and believable world - it has hints of Feist's Empire novels with a 'Eastern' type of culture (formal poses and decorum) but the 'magic' is unique and the books are not derivative in any sense. It is a cracking story and the characters have real strengths, flaws and feelings that make you understand and believe their motivations and actions. Yes there is something akin to 'magic' here but it never supplies an easy get out or plot device (quite the opposite!) - the logic and writing is very accomplished.
The story flows over a number of years and the ending was entirely satisfying. I really hope to hear and read more of this author. Highly recommended!
The Author continues to handle the new concepts he introduced in the first book excellently, the characters continue to grow and change, a vibrant world brings pressures and situations the character are not in control of suggesting they live in a real place rather than a two dimensional backdrop for their adventures.
I would have to say this is the better of the two books because of two major factors. Firstly and probably less importantly the book is paced better than the first and there is virtually no dragging and (possibly due to the first book) less exposition. Secondly, this book brings together the ending very very well. While there is space for additional stories based in the world, there is a real sense that this story has comfortably closed which is startlingly unusual.
I really enjoyed these as an antidote to some of the more kinetic dark fantasy novels that are around at the moment.
I read this quite soon after reading the the Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet and found there was a lot to compare between the two.
Whatever, Daniel Abraham tells a fine story with an engagingly original style - I'm not a fan of giving away best bits and the like, but would add that it's one of the only books where I've slow up in the final chapters to take in the enormity of the journeys that the surving characters have been on.
Buy it and find some quiet time and places to have disbelief suspended.
