I haven't read fiction in ~15 years. I randomly grabed this book. It was quite good. A quick, easy read, not something that looks like a thesaurus threw-up on the page. Obviously a 'character introduction' type piece. I look forward to more.
Superb! Writing far exceeded my expectations. I could see every scene in my head. Very cool character and place names. Well thought out world. Shade is a very fun anti-hero to read. Coolest vision of Dark Elves since R. A. Think I'll go for the whole book once I finish The Way of Kings. I checked out the super slick website and can't wait to read some of the other story lines--specifically Elf Wars. The black forests of Jui-Sae sound really cool. I would definately recommend this product!
