The lethal environment and the surreal adventures experienced by the characters unfold with dazzling vividness. In part this is perhaps because this is much more of an action-driven narrative than a character-driven narrative. The characters feature remarkable origins and properties, but their personalities, with the exception of the heroine, are blocked out rather than painted with fine strokes. The net effect is a decent balance, with the strong narrative compensating for the relative simplicity of the characters' inner dialogues.

As it's intended as part of an epic series, it's somewhat easy to find oneself growing a bit lost amid a complex network of races, conflicts, and motivations.
