One issue for me is that it seems there are too many characters that are not quite developed enough, and I find myself wishing that some were a little more complex. A couple of them, such as Rika, are pretty interesting. The bad guy, boss character, etc., could have been more mixed in his motives and more complex. I had found the Synoki character in the BOTB series fascinating...you never really were sure about him until the series was very far along. This guy, the Jin Dara, after he gets his revenge, is just all power, all evil, all cruelty, pillage, kill, etc. all the time, although his experiments with something like genetic engineering were interesting. Too bad he could not have more inner conflict, some childhood pain, some emotional turmoil behind it,something for the reader to connect with him sympathetically. There are a couple of places where the author just skips ahead and a couple of plot holes that I wish were better managed.
There is still tremendous possibility here. Some of the inner conflict/motives of characters could still be developed later in the series. Could there be a "one of his heads as if it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world marveled after the beast" type of situation? Could there still be a redemptive aspect to the sparing of the life of the mother and children(the Jin Dara's ancestors)in the past? I will definitely buy the next book in the series to find out, and certainly do recommend the Wandering series.
A couple of issues with Kindle....the pages have "The lesser son" on them but the title is "The Lesser Sun," there are a few spelling mistakes, and there is not any map that I could find.
This is a must read for any fantasy lover!
For any who have read his other series, the Binding of the Blade, you will love this book with LB Graham's mastery of character development and the balance between action and dialogue. And also enjoy the feel of this new world, larger, more diverse, more people, more cultures, more to learn and be seen as you travel through the pages with the Wandering.
