really liked it

This is Jon's first book after his debut trilogy. I found it to be an exciting one simply because of the things that the author has tried to accomplish with it. It's a different book than his debut effort as with the Shadow's Son, Jon went for a very tight narrative focus. With this book, we get a much bigger canvas and a much wider POV character cast. I enjoyed the pseudo-Egyptian flavor of the storyline but it's a very faint resemblance. The author's storyline reminds me a lot of James Clavell's Shogun with the main protagonist being shipwrecked, however that's where the comparison ends. The rest of the story is an epic one as we get POVs from a spy, a shipwrecked person, a gladiator, an arrogant queen and many more.
