Very good narrative. Sometimes the development can be a bit slow because he really takes his time to go into graphic details of the scenery. To my opinion this contributes to the experience of being in another realm (it actually reminded me of how Tokien wrote). On the other hand this could be counted as "filler", as he describes areas you'll never see again after that chapter.

The book describes the trek of a company (the members vary throughout the trilogy) "Across the face of the world" (more like a couple of countries in this book), a quest to save captured relatives from brutal spies of the ancient enemy, and neighbouring continent of, Bhrudwo.
During the trilogy the company eventually get swallowed up in a bigger quest, involving war, mysticism, theology and what not else...

I bought the trilogy on a whim and ended up reading it in a little over a week, so I think it's definitely worth a try, even if you doubt that you would like how he keeps describing the scenery.
