Read in May, 2011

The first 200 pages are a terrible slog. WHY DOES EVERYBODY TALK SO MUCH OH GOD. In every fantasy setting there's a lot of exposition and world-building to do at the beginning, but it can be accomplished much mroe elegantly without giant blocks of dialogue. Tt gets a lot better after that though. Sashandra turns into a much more interesting and nuanced character throughout the rest of the book, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series as long as the beginnings aren't as terrible as the first book.
