Admittedly, my rating is based on my read through the book twenty years ago, and a look at a summary to refresh my memory.

Here's my review of the series from my comments on the first book:

I picked up this book at the same time I picked up the first book in another epic fantasy series: the first book in the Wheel of Time series.

The best thing I can say about this book and the rest of the series is that as slowly paced and overwritten as it and the rest of the trilogy is, at least it stopped after three books (well, four in paperback actually thanks to the last book being ridiculously long).

The main character was annoying, and I don't recall the others being very interesting.

Perhaps I would appreciate it more if I were to read it again today, but I doubt it would be worth the slog through well over 3000 pages to find out.
