I'm not sure what happened here. It's like her writing suddenly got really bad, because I don't remember the first book being like this. The writing was so trite, filled to bursting with metaphors and rambling lists, insipid dialogue...argh. I do want to finish the trilogy because the story at least is still interesting, but this book has got to win a purple prose award of some kind. It actually reminds me of the things I don't like about Tolkien: way too much scenery porn, overly flowery dialogue, very little complexity, and reading through it just feels like a slog with little reward.
