This is the first book in a series and it shows. It ends at kind of an awkward place. I wanted to pick up the next book right away but it is not available yet. If you like fantasy books that spend time showing you a new world, than you will like this book. I warn you though - this is not a light read.

Another warning, you have to make it through the first half of the book before it really starts to get interesting. The first part is long and slow, though it does contain interesting descriptions of how magic works in the four part land. I would have preferred that this section be much shorter, and the last part more expanded so we could get to know the characters better.

The last part of the book is very interesting and I will be reading the next book in the series when it comes out.

Also, because this book is part of a a series I am going to withhold my final judgment until I read all the books. I prefer to judge a series as a whole.
