As a big fan of fantasy I just had to read this and what a struggle it was. Not that is wasn't good, in places quite brilliant. I got fed up with the endless description of clothing and armor though.
There are no real good guys or bad guys, just people doing stuff to each other. But when the war starts and the dragons come, ah now I'm interested.
If you are considering reading this series then do watch the TV show, it's bloody good and really helpful. I've watched both TV series and it just gets better, so I've bought the second book which I'll read before the third series, but not in a great hurry.
