Customer Review

on 10 March 2007
I love Robin Hobbs other trilogies, in fact she's my favourite author but I just didn't like Soldiers son or Forest Mage.

In this series she tries to do something completely different, the characters are meant to be more like real people, not perfect and occassionally repulsive but this doesn't make me connect with them more. In fact I found the story very hard to get into. Now before I go further I want to say that the writing is still excellent, its just the characters who do the exact opposite of what you desperatley want them to do.

Its a slightly depressing read becuase you don't think the main character will triumph in the end.

Overall the idea is interesting but not enjoyable to actually read.I hope the third book can redeem the series.
