What started with great promise, ended with a disappointing banality.

The book kicks off with a hint of subtle intrigues, complex characters and engaging dialogues, but gradually devolves to predictable, flat characters operating in a senseless, uncaptivating world.
It kind of felt like the author threw a too many juggling balls into the air, and just couldn't keep up.

Halfway through the book I could hardly put it done, but by the end of it I lost most of my interest and now I feel that it would take me a while before I find the time for the upcoming volumes.
