characterization - bad, unrealistic & cliched - women portrayal even worsepacing - fast and good enough for such a bookplot - acceptable but with several idiotic moments and a lot of unjustified oneswriting - a bit cringe-inducing at times, I'd say not good enough, especially with today's fantasy standardsIf I had read this book when I was a teenager 20 years ago, I would have probably liked it much more. But I've grown as a person and as a reader and so has the whole genre of fantasy literature. This is not good enough any more for me. I'm not saying don't read it, just know that this is pretty much base traditional fantasy and not of the good quality. Later Gemmell books are much better and I would recommend those instead of this one.
