Plodding, uninteresting and completely sexist. Virtually no character development, author is prone to meandering, repetitive dialogue. Every female character is gifted with extensive description of their breasts and passive willingness to sexually gratify the main male characters in exchange for their safety. The main female character’s role is to advance the plot through sexual acts. A really disappointing series for epic fantasy lovers, this series is not worth spending the credits on.

Reads much like the Bible, concise but with no character development to invest the reader.

I tried. The narrative is patronizing, and repetitive. The dialogue is wooden and reductive. Plot exceedingly thin and boring. All of the characters have the emotional intelligence of eighth graders. Narrator is melodramatic. I sampled the second book too and it's just not ready for publishing. It's simlly cliche.

Not enough light to balance the heavy cruel meandering pointless dark. To reliant on dialogue to advance the plot in a world with ex machina physics. creating a convoluted, confusing storyline that is just a bunch of depressing existentialist genocide scenes repeating until they are meaningless. suprisingly little character development for a book this thick.

mostly dialogue... cloudy plodding plot with an incredibly disappointing ending. final 2 chapters ended abruptly, in an anticlimactic, predictable, and patronizing way. not worth the money.
