This series is going to be one of my all time favorites. I really got attached to and cared about the characters. In this way, the writer reminds me of Robin Hobb. Plenty of action and suspense to keep me hooked. Well written imagery. I had a hard time tearing myself away from the story. If you want a story that can pull you in, keep you riveted, and leave you feeling like you have really been through something, then this would be a good book for you.
