I really wanted to like this series.
Worst series by Robin Hobb
I understand that she is building the story for book three, but this book was torture. I kept waiting for the plot to just take off like her other stories do. But, the main character is so self-pitying and has no character growth. The further I got into the story, the more I hated him and hoped someone would kill him off... Terrible to say because I LOVE Robin Hobb, just not this book.
The story picks up in the very last few chapters.
It wasn't for me, but I will say I have read all of her other series, but this one is just lacking in plot and character development. I am disappointed, but will continue to try other series written by Robin Hobb.
