    Thoroughly enjoyable

    Big fan of this type of fiction so please bear that in mind when reading this review. First off I found this very well written, I felt it was in the top 10% of literary constructs, despite a few mildly irritating editorial errors ( spelling mistakes and "'ve" instead of "of" where normally you see the opposite). However despite this pedantry..... Over the first two novels I found the world engrossing and "believable" (in a fantasy epic type of "believable") I thoroughly enjoyed the literary conceit of the sectional introductions by the historical chronicler reviewing his own version of "the truth". I totally bought in to the recent history of the world as it was portrayed, and was intrigued by the, un-revealed, greater history of the world, which hinted at a rich back story. The development of the dramatis personae was enjoyable, if not the deepest of personality development, but I did buy in to the main characters motivations and actions. The best thing I can say about it however, is that having read the first two books back to back, I went off and read the first part of an unrelated novel trilogy and, upon finishing that, came straight back to re-read these two novels, and am thoroughly enjoying the second read through. Have added part 3 to my wish list and am looking forward to July. Would totally recommend if you are a fan of this style of epic fantasy fiction.

    Awesome series

    I am so glad l stumbled upon this series. I was looking for something to read after completing Patrick Rothfuss books and this filled the gap perfectly. I loved this series just as much . The writing and world building is wonderful and l grew to love the main characters. l think the series got better with each book and this trilogy is now one of my favorite fantasy series.

    Good read, but suffers in structure

    It's a well-written page turner, the plot and world richly filled and engaging. The book itself suffers from time to time from minor structural flaws, where jumps in time are not always clear until they've been finished. The central characters feel propelled along by destiny rather than agents of their own course. The story and flowing narration were enough to make me pick up the sequels.
