Read from July 08 to October 06, 2011

So much potential - and most of it wasted. Instead of focusing on a handful of characters in-depth, the author uses dozens of them and barely touches upon them, mostly he just introduces them and hints at their greatness only to kill them off or let them fall aside, forgotten - General Lahk's twin brother? Also, it felt like there were chunks of the book missing: in one chapter, Doranei and his men were surrounded and facing certain annihilation, several chapters later, he was all safe and sound, attending his king a kingdom away - what happened? How was he saved?

I really like most of the characters - Isak Stormcaller, Mihn, king Emin, Vesna, Legana, even Kastan Styrax. But four books in, I still feel like I don't really know any of them...
