So in my review for book 1, I gushed over the plot, how intricate, solid and engrossing it was.

Let's talk about the writing in the review for this book.

(Oh, first I want to mention that I think this is the book where Ryhunzo is introduced? Love him SO much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read the books, you'll see why.) ;-)

Anyway, the writing. The author must have done a lot of historical research because there's a wealth of detail in the books from the type of architecture found in a medieval society to the type of clothes and armor they'd wear. The world building is also very impressive. Each city, country and region has a detailed and intricate history that's referenced as part of the plot.

The politicking and scheming is totally engrossing and totally believable. I'm just so impressed with how the author juggles this many main and secondary characters. They all have their place and function and they all work beautifully in their context.

Really, so impressed with this series. This is a must read.
