really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy

I read this as part of Calico Reaction’s book club for January. I don’t have a very good track record with fantasy, and I won’t lie – I struggled with this book for the first 150 pages or so. Normally, that would have been enough for me to toss it in the “did not finish” pile, but I kept at it. I’m glad I did because once the action picked up, I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the multiple plot twists, and I liked the fact that everything was wrapped up within the book itself (even though there’s a sequel). Even though I couldn’t put the book down after halfway through, I don’t think I’ll be reading the next book in the series (Paladin of Souls). I just didn’t ultimately enjoy it enough for the amount of time I put into it. I won’t give up on fantasy yet, though. I just have to figure out what type of fantasy I like reading.
