HOWEVER, there is a ton of action, very creative magic, and all manner of magical beasts and fairy. I do love a story with fairies and dragons. Also, I did read the entire series, so apparently I didn't hate it. If you like a more literary feel to your fantasy, skip this series. If you like a lot of action and don't care if your characters fall a bit flat, please read on and enjoy!
The characters are slowly becoming more three dimensional. I wish though the author would focus more on the story and characters and less on these long political/philosophical rants on justifications on why some actions are necessary.
The story is very well written and the characters very engaging. However, I find myself wondering at the depth of the overwhelming odds the protagonists face. The author captures this in the story and I find it almost too much to read. Knowing that the main character is human and that his story will evolve with him overcoming the obstacles before him is what keeps me coming back. The writing is so well done I'm forced to really feel for the character. So much so I had step away to read something much lighter and happy but then coming back to follow once again. Well done.
A truly epic story, well thought out and presented. I have read all 7 books in the series (as of this posting), and have re-read them at least twice. I have gone from owning them on Kindle to starting to purchase the paperback versions.
I have read the reviews that mention the book needing an editor, but I can only assume that an editor was indeed found. I find this book to be well written, and few/no spelling or very obviously bad sentences. The book isn't written for English teachers, but is, in my opinion, written well for its target audience, that of mainstream adults who have patience with a 7-book series, and believe in the basic ideas of the 'Old Law', and Good/Evil.
