So, I'm new to the site, hello. I registered for this site a couple of months ago, when I picked up the trilogy, but I haven't had time to really get into the book.

Basically I wanted to comment on the fact that it took me a bit to get into this story. I picked it up a few months back when I had time and read the first 70 pages and then put it down b/c it was a lot to take in at once. I'm used to complex story lines, as some of my favorite authors and worlds are: George R.R. Martin (ASOIAF), Steven Erikson (Malazan), so it's not that I didn't understand what was going on in the book or what was being told to me. Alot of it was a mystery that I can tell you have to put together yourself, but for some reason it took me a few tries to get into this series properly. I'm now past page 100 and it's starting to pick up, I'm seeing threads being formed.

Just something I wanted to say, don't know if you felt the same way at all, and I look forward to posting here more often. Cheers. view post

I am enjoying the novel very much so, finding it hard to put down. The characters are very rich, and the ebst comparison I have is that it has a feel like Erikson's Malazan series. The characters are very real in their confusion in teh face of so much change in their world. And it's not all black and white good standard fantasy. You have good guys doing bad deeds for justified reasons in their eyes, and thats very real, b/c we all do that. Very good book, glad a friend of mine told me about it, cheers. view post

Now that I'm into it, I am loving this book, but for some reason it was a struggle to really want to finish the first few chapters. He has a similiar writing style to that of Steven Erikson I find, cheers. view post
