Hat tip to John Scalzi for pointing out this one. This type of fantasy tends to bore me quickly(think Terry Brooks’ Shannara, Jrdan’s Wheel of Time, Goodkind’s Sword of Truth, etc.). I usually bog down a few books into such a series, which feature large numbers of doorstops. Here I never made it out of the first one. I understand the TV series is pretty good, but I don’t do HBO.
Just as well I think.
