This book starts out very slow. So sit back and let yourself glide along the meandering river of this story.

The magic in this story is like the underpinnings in a bridge. You don't see it often, but when you get the chance to peek over "the bridge", you realize how much depends on what is not spelled out explicitly. I like this subtle approach.

The only detraction that I really have is the following of several groups of characters. If you've read Robert Jordan, then you'll be just fine with following multiple threads of a story.

Sean Russel's evocative writing and careful storytelling will suck you into this series about the legacy of feuding families and sorcery.
