it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy-classic
Read in January, 2006

I'm sorry, but by this point, if I had to read once more about "smoothed faced" ageless women (and insert many other repeated phrases of your choice here), I was going to lose my mind. I kept reading the books for the sake of completion, but by book 5, I was rapidly losing patience and interest. I think these books suffered from the syndrome of many long-running book (and TV) series--the lack of an overall cohesive plotline and the presence of far too many characters to keep active in an otherwise entertaining and creatively built world.

Jennifer Amen! I tried. I really did. I made it through book 8 or so before I just said NO MORE! I liked some of the characters and I enjoyed some of the story, but after a while I felt like I was being manipulated.
