bookshelves: fantasy, did-not-finish
Read in January, 2010

This is the type of stereotypical fantasy that rarely interests me, but I tried it because the library had it, and who knows, it might have been good. It wasn't good, and started out with one of my least favorite things: visions. Visions and prophecies rarely improve a novel, but they seem to be awfully prevalent in the fantasy genre. One of my second least favorite things is war, fighting, and rebellion. I don't care much about troop movements, army raising, and heavy traveling, so this wasn't that great for me. I also didn't really enjoy the world building, which many say is the strong point of this novel. I mean basically it's going to be a medieval setting of some sort be it a small town, port town, run down town, or big castle. Nothing is unique about that. The characters aren't amazing, and aren't in depth enough to carry anything. Not for me.
