    Fairly good story, if slow, but the world building is not origin

    Fairly good story, if slow, but the world building is not original. The volumes so far are pieces of a larger plot, so you have to be patient. Stereotypes abound -- drunken "Nordmen" raiders, Arab-analog religious fanatics, an intolerant established church.

    Good first book in what seems to be a long series

    Songs of the Earth is a pretty good first book of a series. I'm currently on the second, which is even better so if you enjoy the first or can get through its slower and more tedious moments, you will not regret it. As I said, it does drag on a bit in the first book--it mostly follows Gair's adventures, whereas the second book is from other's points of view and even overlaps with the time in the first book. It has an interesting magic system and promises to have great adventures throughout the series.

    Worth the read

    The story started out a little slow, but developed steadily. I'll read the next one so I can see how the charcaters develop.

    Elspeth Cooper: The Wild Hunt

    Stay with the story it gets much better after Gair is away from the religious fanatics. I almost put the book down. Well worth my patience. Looking forward to book two!
