I learned a lot from this book, because I wrote it myself. My rating may be somewhat biased as a result.

Felix The series is awesome. There is not to many Epic/Dark adult fantasies out there. The Painted/Warded man is one of my all time favorites.It feels like 1 part LIl'Abner 1 part crucible shake not stir-then add demons for taste.
