    Will it EVER get better....

    I picked up this story because the ratings were so high. I absolutely love a good fantasy, and especially love anything by authors such as Robin Hobb or the older book series by David Eddings. So when I saw the cover it reminded me of books written by Hobbs and the reviews were good so I bought it.

    Let me tell you, it is one out of the hundreds of books I have read over the years that I have actually put down. The book is well over 700 pages long, so you expect some great long story full of interesting events. I am over 400+ pages in and nothing has really happened. There was one scene that was exciting when they were being chased by the vicious dogs...but other than that you are just as likely to read 100 pages describing a rather boring escape through some tunnels that hold no real interest.

    I may end up picking it back up at a later date to see if the last 300 and some odd pages get better...but I suggest you save your money and buy something by Robin Hobbs like her Farseer series which is worth every penny! You shouldn't have to read 400+ pages before anything starts to happen in a book!!!!!

    This Book Blows

    This story is un-original in so many ways, dull, slow and unsatisfying. I read the three books of the series only because I was ignorant and bought all three together, and in the hope it would get better in the latter books. This series is bad, truthfully, I think it could have been good, unfortunately it wasn't. Skip it, you'll thank me.

    This is simply on of the most amazing books I have ever read, and believe me I have read tons. This probably ranks second on my all time favorites list, right behind the Lord of the Rings trillogy.
