One of the best parts of this book series is the main characters isn't stupid like a lot of writers will make them in order to create problems for them to predictably bumble in to while the reader gets frustrated.
Top 5 I have read this year
Others in its company this year (so far), In no order:
Into The Abyss (Demons of Astlan Book 1) J. Langland
Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archive, Book 2) Brandon Sanderson
Contractor (The Contractors Book 1) Andrew Ball
Call of the Wolf (The Kohrinju Tai Saga Book 1) J P Nelson
Book 1: 5 stars
Book 2: 4 stars
Book 3: 3 stars
Book 4: 2 stars
As you can see, my opinion of the series declined with each book. While Book 1 was a great start, the writing got sloppier, and the number and size of plot holes got worse as the series progressed. So my final rating is the average of the ratings for the whole series rounded down because it ended in such an unsatisfying way. I probably should have stopped after Book 3 and imagined my own ending.
The general story-line is oft repeated -- an orphan with a somewhat mysterious origin is found, and raised by a kindly mentor. With that said, we (know) that the orphan will become something more than an ordinary "Joe Villager".
A foreign king, bent on conquest, overwhelms the village, kills off a large percentage of the population while enslaving the rest, and uses the village as a staging point for conquest.
The protagonist, through immense suffering, is trained, escapes, and finds himself a position in a foreign land where he can put the training to use.
All-in-all, a well-crafted story -- it kept me somewhat interested, though it wasn't overwhelming in context or content...
On the plus side, the story held my interest enough to want to read the rest of the books in the series (which I did). Fuller has created a very unique world and a villain that is actually pretty clever. The dialogue is not bad, and while the plot careens from abyss to abyss, that is to be expected. Character development could be better. Probably should be four stars, but I've dropped it down a peg for two reasons. First is perhaps a bit petty -- if you're going to fragment a world, then you have to do better in describing how this works -- why gravity doesn't pull the pieces together, why the planet's magma doesn't fill the voids, et al. The bigger concern is that the good guys make plan after plan that fail. You would think that at some point in time someone would come up with a plan B, but there never is a plan B.
OK, I don't want to rewrite the book, so let me say this is where it gets interesting. There is in order, possession, escape, madness, sort of an insane asylm, greatest swordsman contest which is really a job interview, guarding the queen and potential mother of god, falls in love, lops the head off of the future father of god's bodyguard's head, stops all kinds of stuff, and dies(??) fighting a daemon.
