it was ok
bookshelves: mediocre, fantasy
Read from February 28 to March 13, 2010

It was a bit difficult to get through some places and I found myself skimming through some descriptions.

No more than an average fantasy with a few irritating things, such as too much of religion, description and explanation of every emotion some protagonists felt, as if the readers are stupid and cannot decide for themselves what a particular type of a smile of a particular character in a particular situation might mean. It is like: Dave smiled wryly. Then she would launch into explanation what it means. When it happens in the beginning when you get to know characters it might be OK but doing it all over trilogy? Too much.
The ending is good, but that's really it. I would not recommend it as a good fantasy to my friends.
