I like it. That's really about it. After the Lord of the Rings, and Terry Brooks' Shanara series... this one just doesn't quite compete. Very good writer, excellent story telling... but I think the main part is that I really didn't like any of the characters and therefore couldn't get sucked into the book. I got sucked into the lives of Aragorn in LOR and whichever Leah from the Shanara books, and then then Hawk and the Knights of the Word... but I just can't relate to anyone in this one. I kind of like Lan... but not enough to live the story. Good writer and story, just not for me.
