Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book had a great start with many in-depth characters. The plot setup was good, set in a medevial type world with wizards. About half way through, though, it seems that Cook abandons all exposition and hops from crisis to crisis with little background detail. "They walked 300 miles, eating fish along the way. They then sacked Troy." It seemed like the first half of the book contained 1/30th of all the action in the book, but 95% of all character development. It is a good read, but if he tripled the length of the book by fleshing out the 2nd half of the book with the same type of detail found in the 1st half of the book he would have had an epic.
I totally recommend getting this if you can find it at a good price.

Wow, this book is great. I have read a lot of fantasy books, but this one tops my list as one of the all time greats. The story was absolutely enthralling, the characters were some of the most lifelike characters I have ever read, if it weren't for the fact that I had to turn the page I would have thought them real. Cook did an excellent job at weaving a tale of high fantasy. I recommend this book to anyone out there who likes fantasy novels or if they think these novels are just toys of a bad imagination, then they should read this book, I believe it will change their perspective on how they view fantasy fiction books.

Absolutely wonderful March 28 2013
By Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my favorite fantasy novel. I've probably read it two dozen times over the years. The characters are great though many of them are a little too extreme in their beliefs and stereotypical. The magic is very cool and much of it is original. I can't recommend it highly enough. Really great stuff.

many better books to read than this Oct. 29 2013
By croaka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I felt compelled to write a review when I stumbled across this even though I hadn't read this book in many years and never will read it again. After an intriguing opening with some clever ideas, imagery, and humor, the book quickly degrades into predictability and bad fantasy tropes. Worst of all, it became boring.
Really? July 8 2013
By Matthew Bird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book again today. I have not bothered to read the following books. They may be great but by the time I finished this one there was no chance I would read any further works in this series. It was dry and hard to believe and just not that good.
