This had so much promise. But sadly I found myself being bored at times. I think many hard core Fantasy (guys) will like this however, it's more for lover of the Wheel of time, than me.
The world building was quite intriguing, quite classic epic fantasy with it's own unique world inspired by the ancient world. I think it's actually my favorite part.
The writing style and Character building were ok, but I seriously found it really hard to keep myself interested. It was just too slow for me. I had started it ages ago, feeling excited about it. Then I put it down and read the odd chapter here and there. But I never got into it. So finally I forced myself to finish it. And the epilogue.. Damn!! So now I don't know if I will read the next one or not. I guess I'll wait and see if any of my friends adore the next one before giving it a try
