Wow. This first part certainly has the feel of an epic story. A whole new world, strongly influenced by the empires of the past and the kind of lives those peoples used to lead back then.

The novel certainly has its fair share of characters and places, so really it's best if you don't read it lightly or keep being disturbed, but even if you do, thankfully the lavish descriptions and the specific vocabulary will really draw you into the story. I did struggle a bit at first, until I realised that this was not a book where you can catch 5 minutes of reading here and there. Once I really got into it, the story literally flowed. The book deserved all my attention. And I did feel rewarded for it :)

I'm really looking forward to part 2 now. There are so many questions left unanswered, it's going to feel like a long wait !

And "Xore's Arse" has so been added to my list of rude expressions. Don't know if I'll ever get to use it without people thinking I'm a weirdo, but I love it nevertheless!
