Brad Delong of all people raved about this book on his blog. I hadn’t read a fantasy novel in a long time and thought, what the hell. And it was actually really good. Solid writing, complex story, and interesting characters that experience emotions that seem real. And most important of all, there are no groan-worthy moments to make you embarrassed for reading the thing. A rarity in fantasy novels.
…so now I’m caught in series hell waiting for the second book to come out in paperback and after that for the third to come out at all.
