I read about 40% of this work before putting it down. The reasons I didn't finish are personal preference and circumstances. Not assigning stars, as the book is not a good fit for me personally.
I read this book with kindle text to speech while commuting and I prefer science fiction to fantasy.
* I had difficulty following the character changes, the names are unfamiliar and being read by kindle they did not form as distinct while I was reading
* Most of the characters have very similar personalities, so without the distinct names or personalities the characters did not develop uniquely in the theater of my mind.
The work is not bad, it is just not a good fit for the space in my life where I tried to put it.
