I like the book enough. All the characters, from King to Sell Swords, to pick pocket are very well written. I haven't found one lacking. They are all worth following. Which is why I am still here and will finish the book. It is just disappointing that the story didn't have the same amount of depth as the characters. You can only read about them "just about going to war" for so long. It is just that I have invested to much at this point I want to follow it through. There is action and good characters but perhaps an overly long book.
I received this at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
1) Thankfully this book was free
2) My biggest pet peeve about this book was how the author kept using full names. It gave me the impression he didn't think his readers were smart enough to remember who the characters were.
3) The author jumped around way to much. In one instance he wrote about a character walking through secret tunnels until a knife was at his throat....
He left us hanging until almost the end of the book, and the explanation suggests the first part could have and should have been omitted entirely.
4) The author could have roped us in more with more elaborate details of the surroundings. The vagueness in this category left much to desire.
5)Grammatical errors throughout the book, but as you can see were I rated this in the whole picture of things. I myself lack in this department, so if I could spot them it's at least worth mentioning.
Now, for what I liked.
1) I did like the plot of the story. It really is the only reason I finished the book.
2) Also, a few of the characters have attracted my attention, and I will finished the series to find out what becomes of them.
