Loved this one, probably one of my favorite Fantasy books ever! Highly recommend it. Full review here:


Wow oh wow oh wow. That was amazing. The reviews on the back don't lie, it's almost as good as Lord of the Rings (maybe even as good), just not as dear to me.

At first I was worried this would be boring because it was day 1, but little did I know the telling of the story happened over one day (though it took me much longer to read it, and usually you tell things slower than you read them), not the whole story. I just need so much more from this I hope to read the next one very soon.

This series has a lot of potential, but I have some problems with this installment. In particular, I have an issue with some plot holes that occur and also some pacing issues due to the plot almost being forgotten on multiple occasions by our own main character.
