really liked it

This is the first Craft book I've read since the first in the sequence, Three Parts Dead. I think I liked that one a little more; Last First Snow sputters a bit at the beginning, and the climax is a little too heavy on spectacle for my taste. These are minor quibbles, however - Gladstone has a terrifyingly vast imagination and a gift for building story momentum with his meaty prose; all of his considerable gifts as a writer are on display here. And Temoc, a conflicted warrior priest who has too many impossible choices to make while defending his people from powerful forces, is as memorable a hero as you will find in fantasy literature this year.

Last First Snow is the earliest in the Craft sequences in terms of internal chronology, and can certainly be read without having read any of the books published prior to it. I still think Three Parts Dead is a better introduction to this world and I recommend reading that one first.
