Liked the idea of this book more than the execution. The story is terrifyingly chock-full of monsters and demons and battle scenes, but the narrative arc just isn't strong enough (the book is so enormous--I wish it had been 1/2 as long). I felt swamped down by stories of healers and battles when I really wanted to .feel. something strong about David, his brother, and the many losses their family incurs from having an epileptic member. I tried to love this book in the best way I knew how, but it wasn't a good fit. Only near the end did I feel connected to the characters.
