This was OK. A little too complicated to be mindless enjoyment, and a little too flat to be entirely enjoyable, it ended up being just OK.

DNF 29% - I really wanted to like this book. I've tried twice to read it now. It has all the things that make a great fantasy novel, but it couldn't hold my attention. When it finally did, the chapter would suddenly end and I'd get a different POV. It felt like I kept getting interrupted and it was irritating. Worse yet, it was filled with telling you things that were important vs showing them. A lot of the info dumping paragraphs could have been enjoyable had they been made into scenes. When I glanced at the other books in my library, I wished to read those instead. So I'm giving up on this one for the final time.

While not promoted as such, this is clearly the first in a series. The ending was not exactly a cliffhanger, but the fate of one of the main characters is unknown. That's too close to a cliffhanger for me.

None of the characters appealed to me enough to care much what happened to them. A lot of work went into the world building, but I still didn't like the world. The writing was technically not bad.

I'll probably read a sequel if it's published, but I won't be waiting with bated breath.
