Customer Review

on March 26, 2013
This book is not for the faint hearted. I would not blame someone for giving up on this story a third of the way in. The style IS confusing, it rushes through more unexplained history than you can shake a fairly big stick at. The narration sometimes leaves you feeling like you were the one that just got randomly attacked by something that is never quite understood or explained yet somehow ripped your leg off.
Yet. You put in the time. You stand up to the confusion, the unbalance, the pace. You invest yourself in the detail of histories stretching a thousand years, with characters that have seen it all until the definition of God and mortal blur into empire and a battle for power that if you blink, you miss it. Do this and then put down this book. Look at the dirt, the notched sword, the wounds of a battle won, and another lost; smile and remember the happy times when all you expected out of fantasy was good and evil..... with a shed load of magic.
