Recensioner

I loved the first book. I was completely engrossed. Second onwards it started being repetitive. By third I lost interest midway ( when pages were written on how Blanche starts alloting rooms). Here are the reasons for me to lose interest.
1. A seemingly invincible and knowledgeable enemy like Thorn does dumb stuff .
2. An even stronger enemy Ash - ditto
3. Sub plots that I just couldn't connect to like Peter
4. Pages and pages written on stuff where authors shows his knowledge of what it takes for a person, group , army to travel. Unfortunately it's not at all interesting forva person like me.
Maybe it was because I read these books after Makaan reread but I doubt it. So three unfinished series for me - sword of truth and Inheritance Cycle being the other two.

It's traditional epic fantasy, with a world inspired in feudal Europe, threatened by the expansion of the Wild, which is like a magical force of wild nature and the fey realm (think like one of those huge, enchanted forests and hordes of creatures within). In that context, the north of one kingdom is invaded by the Wild. While the kingdom tries to muster its forces to respond to the invasion, an ancient fortress in the northern forests, inhabited by an order of nuns, hires a mercenary force to help defend their fortress. The Red Knight who gives the first book its title is the leader of that mercenary force.

The author is a historian and former officer in the US Navy who belongs to a historical reenactor group. Before writing epic fantasy, he wrote historical novels. All that shows in the style, with many details about military issues and medieval life.

The story is told with a number of point of view characters, in alternate chapters. There are probably too many point of view characters, and I felt the story was interesting but a bit too long, wordy and slow at times. In the end, it was a fine read, but I had to wonder if it was worth spending so many hours on it. At least it works (more or less) as a standalone, because the idea of reading the whole saga is too much for me.

2.5 stars. Actually didn't quite finish; his literally blow-by-blow career, while well-written, palled on me eventually, especially when I realized this tome was just the first part of a series.

This book was good, but not incredible. Some of its flaws: (i) the characters, while interesting and likable, were not as deep as I think the author was hoping for (ii) the subplots didn't often progress in an interesting manner, even if the progressed in the sense that they followed the main storyline (i.e. things like the romance angle, the relationship between the queen and the magus, the reason for the sossag being in the book were introduced and then not developed, which was a bit awkward) (iii) the perspective switching was fine, but inconsistent. Sometimes the author would tell you when he was switching to someone new, sometimes not.

Overall, I'll read the next one, and hope it's as good or better!
