Hiroshi Sasaki that series is crack

Danika Dinsmore lol. I had a hard time getting into it until they discovered the visitors from "another world." I don't think it's as engaging as Robin Hobb's or Cinda Williams Chima's work. The characters aren't as multi-dimensional, in particular, the female characters are under-developed. But i'm still invested enough to finish it.

Hiroshi Sasaki the series is fascinating, because you get to see the evolution of a writer at his craft...

Clearly I need to read Hobb!!!

Danika Dinsmore Clearly! Hobbs is most definitely crack.

Hiroshi Sasaki you were clearly underwhelmed!

Danika Dinsmore I still have to finish a proper review of it... POV issues throughout. And way too much "telling" instead of showing. And where's the apprentice part? The magician was pretty useless if you ask me. lol.. it only got interesting again in the last few chapters.

Hiroshi Sasaki Ahh: it's been so long since I read it ('80s?)... I look forward to your review.
