    This book (and series, really) seems to always be accompanied by reviews that deem it 'difficult to get into, but if you stick with it the series gets better'. I guess I kind of see where that sentiment comes from... Gardens of the Moon opens with a massive battle, where magic-wielding characters are fighting each other and attacking a city floating in the sky. That is quite the opening. I'd say most fantasy stories weave the magic elements into the plot over time or with a bit of an info dump beforehand. Not this time. Then after the massive magic battle we spend much of the story with 'smaller' characters who are thieves, assassins, soldiers and royalty, with the occasional mage interjected. More of a 'boots on the ground' type of feel. But wait, there are also actual gods and demons that make their way into the picture as well. There are some really interesting characters, my top 3 being Anomander Rake, Sorry and Harelock (I listened to the audio book so apologies if their spelling isn't quite right.) The plot is twisting, full of intrigue, murder, mayhem and a dispute between destiny vs free will. It's a great opening to what I hope is just as great a series. Recommended!
