This book is absolutely amazing! I have always been a tough critic on books. If a book can't keep me interested for just one chapter, I drop it. This books has sucked me in since the first page and it continues to take me on an epic adventure, paragraph by paragraph. I love how well the author develops not just the story, but the characters as well. You don't just get a bit of background with a little character development, you learn more and more about the characters as the adventures unfold. I love this book!
