it was amazing

I read an advance reader copy of this book. And it is epic. Not just because it belongs to the epic fantasy genre, but because there are so many characters and scenes, and plot-lines even, that are huge and epic. This second installment is even better than the first. Great characters, incredibly well-thought out world, great drama and pathos, and some of the best, bloodiest combat scenes I've ever read. I eagerly await the next installment. And unlike many other writers in this genre, Durfee is actually producing.

Content warning: this book is very dark and gritty, though brightened with some honest-to-goodness good guys. It's very violent and it has very foul language--stuff that made me cringe (though I'm an admitted prude). Thankfully, it has none of the sex scenes that so many other authors are writing nowadays (Martin, Weeks, etc.).
