I'm a little torn about my feelings on this book. The writer is obviously a good story teller, and is good a painting pictures with his words, BUT... Some portions of the plot are unbelievable, and at the end of the book, there are many fundamental questions left unanswered. I understand that this is meant to be the first book of a trilogy, but I've always felt that each book in a series should be able to sustain itself if read alone.

The author also seems to overuse certain descriptive adjectives to describe the same characters and their features, creating a blatantly redundant writing style that sticks out like a sore thumb and distracts you from what is happening.

I enjoyed the read, but it just wasn't outstanding, and didn't live up to my high expectations.
