Book Description (from back cover):


Ah, what to say about this? I heard great things about this. Most of the blogs I follow have very positive reviews for it. So please keep that in mind as you read the following...

It's long. I don't mean page length (though it's that too), but the story isn't very fast paced. I read it in a day — I read most books in a day — but I think I'd have enjoyed it more if it hadn't been so drawn out. The pace picked up suddenly at the end, but not much was resolved (something of a cliff-hanger).

I read somewhere that this is a four book series. I guess this was the introductory book. It introduced characters and let the reader discover the world/situation, but that was about it.

After all that, I guess I should say I didn't hate this book. It was interesting, I did enjoy picking out which characters were "good", "bad", somewhere in between, etc. But I tend to prefer a series that has some story wrapped up in each book, and I didn't really get that here. That being said, I probably will read the next book, Torment.
