M. D. IREMAN was diagnosed as 'left-brained' early in life due to a troublesome affliction: an affinity for math and science. The stigma of his condition followed him from primary school into college, where he earned a scholarship to the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science. Against the pleas of his doctors, he gave up his scholarship to pursue a different calling, and has been building Sci-Fi and Fantasy worlds professionally for nearly two decades.

Now a middle-aged recluse with more thumbs than friends, he lives in the mountains of Colorado with his wife, the deer, the hawks, and the rabbits.

That's a tricky question.

There are two somewhat major characters in the first book, a woman and a young man, where one would really have to be reading between the lines to find any cause for sympathy. It exists (arguably), but not in the told storyline.

Typically in fantasy the "big bad" or "great satan" tends to involve more than no apparent cause for sympathy - their destruction is the "win" condition for all the protagonists and/or the realm. In that sense, there don't exist any in books 1 or 2 (no date set for 2 yet, sorry). I don't avoid characters like that as a rule, however, I wouldn't expect any to develop in this series.(less)

It was determined that it did not add to the story enough to make up for the increased chance of frustrating readers with an even higher character count.(less)

This book was absolutely amazing and I devoured it in three days! I'm surprised no one has mentioned the glaring Game of Thrones similarities but that may be because we're all thinking what no one wants to ask out in the open" Read more of this review »

There's less sexually explicit content than ASoIaF, however, if you read that series and thought its sexual content was gratuitous, this probably isn't a series you'll enjoy.
