This setting turns the standard Tolkien style fantasy setting upside down. Its gritty noir fantasy set in a realm where magic is used in place of technology. I believe a good term for it would be "spellpunk". If you are looking for something a bit different in your fantasy, this is a great read, and it was hard to put down.
I enjoyed it so much that I went ahead and ordered the other two books in the series.
First, the book has a lot of references to the Eberron setting. While this is a good thing if you've played and are familiar with the setting, it can be a huge turn off if you are not.
Second, the amount of typos and grammatical errors is unacceptable and very distracting. Is WotC releasing books w/o proofreading/editing first?
Third, the characters are a bit shallow (or at least the description thereof). They have no depth.
Fourth, the plot is predictable and very linear.
Fifth and lastly it overuses tired and shameless cliches.
It's not a bad book, to be sure, but it's not nearly as good as I was expecting.
