really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, fantasy
Read in June, 2011

As I was trying to figure out what to write about this, I realize that the major thing I like about it is it's subtlety. It has all the major elements of classic fantasy (magic, dragons, epic battles, other races), but they take a back seat to the story of people and their struggles. The real story is one of several children coming of age during a time of great difficulty, and preparing for even more difficult times ahead (Winter is coming, after all). There were some amazing twists and turns, and I can't wait to read the next few books to see how it all pans out (prediction: winter arrives).

Richerd I read this book years ago. I started the second book but never got past a few chapters before i forgot about it.
