I did not particularly like these books. I had an extremely difficult tome getting through the first book. Not because it is a difficult read but because it is extremely dull. I have a good imagination and I do not require four pages describing trees to help me visualize the world he created. I would give the first book one star but the other two were better so it got three but I still don't recommend it to someone who doesn't enjoy a ridiculous amount of description on scenery. In comparison the characters are underdeveloped.
