I agree with cerebral vs emotional distinction. Most of your characters read as very cold and intellectual - typical rather of Hard SF novel of, say, Greg Egan, than of fantasy. I don't mind it , especially that I like both Achamian and Esmenet and I keep rooting for them - but for some fantasy readers Achamian and Esmenet are simply too unheroic. Those characters also add welcome whiff of the shadier aspects of life which are conspicuously absent in abovementioned kind of books.

I also share your pessimism about human nature (in fact it is considered default opinion in our culture), so I have no problem with it. view post
