it was amazing
Read from March 12, 2010 to April 25, 2013

This is really like a 4.75 - it just didn't belong with my four-star books, but I don't know that the 5 stars is really 100% accurate either. Just because I hate giving the very fist book in a series 5 stars until I know how the rest of it turns out. But I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this book - it was awesome! It was such an enjoyable read - not a fast read, but you just really truly enjoy every single passage. The writing is amazing and beautiful, and of course the most important thing - I absolutely adored the main character. He was surprising and unique, not at all a character I've read before. In fact, this book in general was unlike anything I've ever read, but I'm not even sure I can explain how. I've read a lot of fantasy, and a lot of adventure/hero type stuff. But the way the author weaves this story is just lovely.
