A must-read for the realistic fantasy lover
Reviewed in the United States on March 1, 2016
I love love love this series. I've read a lot of fantasy and sci fi, and was pleasantly surprised to come across these addictive and compelling gems. There is a gritty reality to this fantasy setting, and decent amounts of crime and murder, with just enough fantasy and magic to set it apart. I like it a teensy bit better than I like the Kingkiller series, about as much as ASOIAF, and more than the First Law trilogy, because I find the character development to be more in depth. I should say I'm in the middle of book 2 at the moment, and am kind of dreading reaching the end of this series because then I'll be hard-pressed to find another of its quality.
