Rather Unexpectedly Excellent
Reviewed in the United States on June 24, 2016
Two bucks, what am I, proud? I buy a lot of $2 kindle things. Roughly half of them suck.
But this doesn't suck. This is quite good.
Grown-up fantasy. Inappropriate language. Bloody violence. No elves. Plenty of lovingly described fight scenes. But by no means excluding rich emotional content amongst/between the players.
In judging a fat book or a fat series, perhaps the most important thing is this: do I want to know what happens?
Reader, I did. I wanted to know what happens. I'm nearing the end of the fourth volume and I'm already unhappy because I know this will run out soon enough. But I won't stop, because I want to know what happens to these people I care about. My only advice: never get involved with fiction.
