Fans of Sanderson, Weeks, Joe Abercrombie/Glen Cook (it isn't quite as dark as their work, but it has that "boots on the ground" feeling), and Rothfuss will love this novel. If you are more interested in a tougher read (Erikson/Malazan fans come immediately to mind), you might find this book a little too "easy" (there are only about 4 POVs/settings, the timeline is easy to understand, character relationships/positions/archetypes are pretty easy to follow).
Overall, I strongly suggest this novel to any epic fantasy fan.
-- We see a lot more of Taniel
-- Good action, larger campaign scenes as well as individual
-- The plots lines progress
--The various magic systems are still relatively poorly described. I suspect he has rules that everything follows, but we don't get to see them up front as we do with Sanderson. (McClellan is a student of Sanderson after all)
-- Felt a little short. It's a funny thing to say about a 600 pg. novel, but it read quickly. Of course, I'm just coming off a reread of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, so my perspective may be a bit skewed.
Brian does an excellent job of pacing in this book, and his characters feel even more fully developed than they did before.
The one criticism that I have is that I don't feel the passage of time in the novels. I know that some of the events take a week or so to develop, but I don't feel that time when I read.
Even with that one criticism I'm giving this a 5 star review. I love this novel and the series, can't wait for the future works.
P.s. do yourself a favor and get his novellas as well, they're absolutely worth it.
But be prepared for a cliffhanger ending.
Once again, Brian McClellan has written a book that has cost me my sleep. I have fallen in love with the all the characters. It's a rarity for me to love each character and every chapter keeps me turning the pages wanting to find out what has become of them. I am excited for each new installment and applaud his writing skills. It's a breadth of fresh air in what seems a stale time for innovative writing.

Yeah I remembered that this was recently released and got here and saw the price tag... I will just wait till I find it cheap in one of the large used book stores around town or somewhere online.
