reviewed on + 8 more book reviews

This series is much different than his Dresden series and I just could not get into this book. It was very difficult to understand what was going on & many things weren't quite explained or defined. Such as, what exactly is a "windcrafter?" What is a "Rill?" What is the "Academy?" Who exactly are these characters? I was pretty confused a lot through this book. I think if Butcher would have gone into more detail in the beginning & introduced the characters in better detail, it would've been a good read. I got about halfway through and couldn't tell you why these certain characters were against each other & why & what they were planning. Overall, I give this book one star.
