the main charater wasn't interesting enough to care about his inner turmoil.

Its not that this was a bad book, its just that I couldn't get fully into it, and I kept putting it down because I found other more interesting things to read. The last time I went to get pick it back up, I had completely lost the story line.

It took a while to get into the story, and then I was hooked. Very good combination of character development and fantasy mythology.

I don't usually read fantasy, but picked this one up on a whim. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The plotting was unique and the characters had a lot of depth.
