Read in September, 2009

I started reading this series after reading about it on Joe Abercombie's blog. While this not exactly Malazan Book of the Fallen, it is much better than most of the stuff around. It follows the standard Fantasy device of an unlikely boy coming to great power. While the world building and some of the characters are sound, plot-wise apart from a few good moments, there is hardly anything pathbreaking. Plodding language and less than epic themes or grit and sheer drama pull down the book. It is not a bad read while you are waiting for "The Dust of Dreams", "The Gathering Storm" and "The Dance of Dragons"
