Right up front you are bombarded with a wealth of information about the world and those that inhabit it. At times it's just too much to absorb for the average reader. If you can get through the first half of the book you'll find this is a really great read. I wasn't fond of the exotic descriptions, especially of the battle scenes. The book as a whole has a lot to offer with well fleshed out characters and a plot that is anything but simple. Overall it was an enjoyable read and I look forward to future releases by this author.
