The story is told through the eyes of the bard Fintan. A large group of bone giants has invaded, causing chaos and destruction. Throughout Fintan's telling of the events, the reader gets a picture of what the conflict was like. Numerous (too numerous, in my opinion) characters are introduced throughout the story, and I had a difficult time keeping track of who's who. I realize this is an epic fantasy, and they tend to have many characters, but it seems to me that Hearne might have went a little overboard with his.
As for the story itself, I did enjoy it when I got into the book, but trying to keep everyone straight took away some of the enjoyment for me. I hope book 2 in the series is better than this one.
You just have to take in fact that this is a bard relaying a tale. This is the focal point for really understand how to enjoy the book. Courtesy of Luke and Xe, I was fully able to immerse myself into the story and see myself being enthralled by the spinning of the bards tale.
The only thing that took away from the experience was the sheer number of characters. But then again, you don't read epic fantasy books with the sole intention of knowing ALL of the characters in the first book. :)
