Blood Song is a solid story. Excellent world building, realistic characters and an intricate plot. Perhaps too intricate, since the author weaves many threads at the same time; I'm still not sure how the book ended. I trust that "Tower Lord" will clear up my issues, or a later sequel will.

What I felt Blood Song was not, was emotive. I would hazard the reason for this is that the over-arcing plot wasn't completely fleshed out. We followed Vaelin al Sorna, both in the present and in his past because that's what Blood Song was: a history. I suspect Tower Lord will be far better than Blood Song, being able to build upon the tremendous amount of world building already done, and deliver a spectacular story.
