it was amazing
Read in February, 2012

take and combine patrick rothfusses kingkiller chronicles with robin hobb's farseer trilogy...(maybe a little from brandon sanderson's elantris) and you have the warded man. it was a fast ride with quick introductions to the main players. not overly wordy like a lot of fantasy novels. fast, interesting and delightful.

right from the start you're carried away to a new realm and time. new characters. this was like reading a good fantasy book for the first time. it didn't have the usual reused bits from other authors (minimal similarities). it's difficult to be original. it's hard to invent debut characters and stories without mirroring other authors ideas. and there's a lot of original stuff at play here.

give it a try. you will find yourself saying, "to the core with you". get to know the 3 main characters. feel hope and heroism and people unite and work together. what character do you most identify with? maybe you will relate to all 3. i'm a picky reader. i loved the book and i suggest you give it a whirl.

it's onto the 2nd book for me now.

Jared Taber So true. So true. It's like minecraft was in The Wheel of Time. Fantastic. I couldn't put it down.

Beth York After what feels like eons you've finally devoured this delicious book. Knew you'd love it. Can't wait for you to start the 2nd book!
