Have you ever read one of those books where you're instantly interested in the main character? Yeah. This is it. It starts with a prologue of an incident in the Aiden Wainwright's youth. Chapter 1 begins with him as an adult who has been defined by that incident. The city they're in has been shut down and someone has to get through for supplies. A number of characters join him along the way. Each one of these people have their own personality and are given the time to develop to the point where the reader is invested in what happens to each and every one. My favorite is the cleric, Nellise. (I have a thing for beautiful clerics, but . . . ) Actually, my biggest complaint about these books is that Nellise's life is going to suck. I'm certain it will end badly. *sigh* The dialogue has humor scattered throughout, the battle scenes are vivid and intense, and the characters make you like or hate them. For the first time in a long while, I found myself staying up late, not wanting to put the book down. I truly recommend this to anyone who likes high fantasy. At over 200,000 words, it's a tale of epic proportions that reads fast.

1400+ pages but still a fast read. An exciting adventure with excellent characters. About halfway thru, I did get find it kinda irritating that Pace was referred to as the "blonde rogue" and Aiden as the "young adventurer" soooooo frequently. Either just use their names or vary the descriptive reference more.

1493 pages and i could not put it down. These heroes are exciting and relatable. You will feel their triumphs and their pains and sorrows. They are outcasts, and mercenaries. As well as best friends and companions. This book will break your heart, then put th pieces back together along with our heroes. Best book i have read since " The Name of the Wind ". I am absolutely waiting for more.

This book is a bit like a bunch of short stories with ties to each other and tied together with a few rubber bands. Don't misunderstand, the stories are pretty good, and the parts tying them together get a bit better towards the end. That being said, the author refers to one character constantly as "the blond rogue" or "the rogue" and wish he'd have just called the character by name or found a different way to refer to him other than "the blond rogue" constantly.

A great adventure story with characters full of depth and trauma. A fast pace that keeps the story moving though there are a few instances of typos and other minor things. All together a fun read and I am looking forward to the next book.
