My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the second in the serious. This is not for the “light-hearted” fantasy readers; there is a lot of meat here. Erikson throws you into the thick of the story and it is either sink or swim. If you swim through the first few chapters you will be pulled in until the last pages. I like the characters he has developed and the way magic works in his world.
You can’t go wrong with this book if you like well-developed fantasy.
