I like the different species. The only thing missing is better descriptives of the races. Then again they don't make repeated appearances. However, I saved notes to refer to so I can understand who looks like what like a Yemmu versus a Tralgu versus a Cinnae.
The characters are interesting and just when their personas appear knowable and one can predict their direction, Abraham shifts their positions. I was impressed and felt as though I misjudged the series. I appreciate the different roles and look forward to reading on to see where it all ends up.
The series is good so far. It's one of the first since A Song of Ice and Fire that has really held my interest much beyond the first few pages. I like that the magic is subdued, much like ASOIAF. It's not in your face and everywhere. I can't say I like it as much as ASOIAF but I think depending on the next books in the series, it has the potential to be better. I feel like it's building to that but I can't be sure, I hope it is. I haven't had any jarring, "oh no you didn't" moments like I had in ASOIAF and I think that is what is missing, maybe. There is not quite as much depth, it feels just a tad more shallow but I think it's what makes it so much easier to read which can sometimes be just as enjoyable as being tangled up in plot lines so thick you think you'll never escape to figure them out.
If you liked the first book you'll like this book more. If you like thoughtful fantasy that isn't all war, you should like the series.
Much like ASoIaF, the magic elements are at a minimum, and it lets the characters come out and do more interesting things. This series does a great job of showing all aspects of medieval society, and I especially enjoy the entrepreneurial aspect of Cithrin.
This is definitely a great series to follow.
