Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I haven't read "Sellsword's Compassion" yet, so the setting here was new to me. It's a kind of darker fantasy, urban grit kind of setup, with plenty of seedy underbelly and stalwart holdouts. It works well for the kind of tale going on here -- plenty of conflict, loss, action, and self-interest -- and compliments the main character nicely. It doesn't really have that shiny plastic feel I associate with a lot of more whimsical fantasy -- it feels a lot more visceral, which again works with the character. It gives the feeling that Peppers really thought through what kind of world he's talking about, and this was an effective peek into it. I'll be reading the next one for sure.
I have never read anything by Peppers before, but am eager to read further adventures in the Downs.
