Gripping and clever, 19 Oct. 2007
Maybe I'm easier to please than the other people that have reviewed the book on this site; but I really couldn't put it down. Translation issues have been raised, but in all honesty I think it's a very minor issue, it doesn't spoil the enjoyment of the book at all.
The stories are clever and the setting is intriguing. It's a very original take on an old subject matter and it leaves you wanting more. I read all three books in a couple of weeks and I recommend the whole trilogy to anyone that likes fantasy.
