I picked this book up after reading ” A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.” I wanted something that danced along the lines of that series. I actually googled ” books like game of thrones.” So this is the 1st book in the series of The Garden of the moon here are my thoughts!
pros: lots of plots, nice fantasy world, great characters. a long read!
cons: it was confusing at times, the dialogue isn’t great. It didn’t grab my attention at times and let you wonder without pulling you back. The description of people and places was off as far as the vocabulary used.
I say check it out, but be prepared this is not George R. R. Martin! Steven Erikson has a unique style that at 1st needs to get used to, but its worth it.
