Any additional comments?
Bought the first 3 books in the series, but didnt make it much into the 2nd. Too many characters are included without any sort of introduction, making many sequences where I have no idea who is talking. The plot is a bit all over the place with no sense of a direction. I just found myself bored.

I've read a few chapters of this book a few months ago, and decided to move to audiobook, because I felt I'd get a better understanding of the book this way.
I've really enjoyed the first portion of the book. The splendid reader, keeps me attentive by changing his voice for each character.
Looking for something to follow Joe Abercrombie's First Law trilogy I found several reviews for this series and it sounded just what I was looking for. It was. Interesting characters and a plot that you never know where it's going.
Two minor issues though to bear in mind. Firstly this book has a glossary which is not available in audio format. So there are times where you lose the thread slightly as names and places are mentioned which you are unfamilar with.
The other minor issue is that the remaining books in this series are not available on Audible's uk site. I contacted them and they were quick to respond although with less than good news. They do not have the rights to the remaining books. Hopefully this will be resolved at some stage though.

First class, at the moment best fantasy author after Tolkien, the only problem I have is that there should be more audiobooks of Steven E. that's it:)

everything past the first book (vol. 1 and 2) in this series is blocked to Australian customers.

Hard to get into because at the start it reads like you have come in mid series expecting you to understand what is going on and jumps around a lot. By the when you know
the characters and have some idea what is going on you love it
