I liked the protagonists of the book with Breag being my favorite of the characters. As a werewolf who hunts other werewolves in hopes of taking them home, he has a very sympathetic motivation. The fact the "sanctuary" for his kind is anything but is also deeply affecting. I also loved how tortured he becomes when he finally does discover someone who can save him but doing so would destroy her.
The book's message of having to accept your nature and question what religion as well as society teaches about you is applicable for a variety of topics along with extremely relevant. It's not a one-to-one correlation, though, and not preachy either. The supporting characters also enrich our understanding why everyone does what they do.
In conclusion, this is a great and oftentimes sad book which works well. There's a few flaws in the story's flow that sometimes feels like it wanders a bit but I still enjoyed it.
I recommend this to any fan of epic, high fantasy.

The Tiarna Beo is a land frozen in the still moment between acts of savage violence. Forty years after a Purging that drove an entire race either into the ground or north through the mountains, every man watches his words and his neighbour. Only a fool draws attention to himself, and only the suicidal travel from the North.
Growing up fatherless in a cold and grieving home, Breag had a clear vision for his future – a good woman, a family of his own and a quiet life. When his good woman betrays him, her confederates force him into the Tiarna on a mission to find one of the Lost and bring it home to be sacrificed. Mired in hopeless duty and wandering rootless among people who would kill him if they knew what he was, Breag struggles to hold on to the frayed edges of his humanity.
But no good deed goes unpunished. When his rescue of a brutalised young woman reveals her to be the Lost he has spent eight years hunting, Breag is forced to choose between her life and his future. And she’s not prepared to go quietly. Breag’s choice will create ripples that ignite the fumes of anger among his people and theirs, and ultimately to burn the entire kingdom down around his ears.
