Fascinating and well-thought-out world building. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Excellent read! Picked it up and couldn't put it down! Read the entire book in one sitting and realized that the second one is noty even out yet, so I will have to wait for more from the world of Annur.

Suitable, I think for anyone from age 16 and above ,provided the younger reader is advanced and familar with the genre.

If you like this one,try anything by Brent Weeks. Super stories !!!!!

Once I was in to it, I couldn't put it down until 3:30 in the morning when I finished it. I've tried to pick up a new book 3 times since I finished and have not been able to do so. I'm still immersed in the Annurian empire and don't want to leave it yet. A VERY GOOD book - a terrific read. I highly recommend it.

I haven't been so captivated by a fantasy novel since reading Dune for the first time. A fully realized world, political system, and religion. Three dimensional characters to care about. Wonderful story.

"Kaden felt only calm, distance, as though he were no more than the wind rifling his robes, no more than the snow on the peaks, or the silent clouds scrubbing the sky."
