This is the kind of trilogy that once you read the first may or may not want to continue on. Obviously, I did; However, I can't say that I am enthralled. There are good points of the book...Carey does know how to unfold a story line, if not making it overly complicated. Yet, I still don't connect to her protagonists besides Phedre. She is the only reason I am going to continue reading. I enjoy the intrigue, but it can be confusing. Nobody has taken the mantle of fantasy writing away from Robin Hobb. I would love to find another author who did. This is not the kind of book I'd tell my friend, "You have to read this!" But, I am going to finish the journey because I don't easily give up....i.e. Robert Jordan's series...which also displays some of the overly complicated story lines that can drive a reader to distraction...yet, I still read it and will read the final book when it comes out.
