Would give 3.5 stars if I could, but doesn't rise to a four-star.
I did enjoy this book a lot, and began book two as soon as I finished this one.
This took a while to hook me. I struggled early to identify with and embrace the characters. Once I did, though, it was an easy read. By the end of the book, I was keenly interested in what was happening with these people. Not on the edge of my seat or anything, but interested and concerned.
The world-building was sketchy and lacking. I seldom felt immersed in the setting.
Read more like historical fiction than fantasy, just with fictional locations -- although, the fictional place-names were pretty transparent.
All-in-all, a good book -- not a great one. Entertaining, but not captivating. I'll finish the trilogy, though, as it wound up good enough to hold my attention.
