I must start this out by saying that this book was not what I expected. I really don’t know what I expected, but this wasn’t it. I had heard online good things about the author so I decided to try her out. This was the first of her books that I’ve read. I intend to read more.
This book is an epic (and heroic) fantasy, a genre I like very much. Though I won’t try to compare this book to the masters, it has a depth of history and a magic system that is the challengereally strong. I was very impressed and happily surprised.
