I really had to force myself to complete this book. Certain parts of the story were interesting enough to keep me going, but not at a breakneck pace by any means. Similar to George Martin in that the tale is told largely through the eyes of orphaned kids. Where Durham fails horribly though is with his character development.

This book was rough at first and I almost gave up. After this though I thought it was a very good book, then I got to the ending. I won't spoil it but it annoyed me enough not to read the other two books.

The first book of a fantasy epic, and a decent, but not excellent, beginning. The author falls short on depth and detail of the imagined world and, more importantly, on making us care about his characters. The story proceeds quite predictably until the very end, and even then the one or two slight twists are awaited and insufficiently dramatic.
