Honestly I was a little disappointed at first. I had hoped to plunge headfirst into an intense epic, the kind of classic fantasy this series is advertised as being. But it doesn't take more than a couple pages for the reader to feel as if they are sitting in a lecture hall listening to a monotone professor ramble on about their own imagined world. It's a world she'd obviously given a lot of thought to the details and history of, but it's also the kind which, while exceedingly interesting to the creator, can induce one to fall asleep at the desk. I guess it just wasn't much fun.
