5.0 out of 5 stars
Great book, Jan. 8 2012
For those looking for a mature, first person narrative instead of all action all the time epic fantasy novel, this is an excellent read.
The character development is amazing, the world creation is fantastic, and the flow of the story is great.
I have read A Song of Ice and Fire, Wheel of Time, Memory Sorrow Thorn, Gentlemen Bastards, and several other excellent fantasy novels, and this ranks among the best of them.
I will warn those of you who are into books like Game of Thrones, or Wheel of Time, that this is NOT epic fantasy it is just a really really good first person story about growing, making mistakes, and learning... or not learning from them.
Definitely recommend for all those who like the fantasy genre, and even those who do not.
You are not going to get better than this.
PS: Please read 'Name of the Wind' first.
