Boring doesn't even begin to cover it. 100 pages and nothing interesting happens. The characters are bland. The story doesn't move forward the tiniest bit. Basically, the whole Part I - which is the 100 pages - takes place in a valley. Three men come in, one's injured. Lehen, the daughter of the farmer who offers them a place to stay, treats the injured man's wounds and falls for one of his companions, Nahim. She helps her sister with a childbirth. The men chase away a band of orcs. The men leave. That's 100 pages of nothing at all! I mean, other reviews say that the book gets really good once Nahim returns home but why should I be obliged to trudge through hundreds of pages to "get to the good part?" No, thank you.
