The story had so much potential. The world and the supporting characters were interesting. The main problem for me with it was the main character. He constantly second guesses his choices and indulges himself in self pity. And with all the second guessing of his choices you would think he would have some better plans. He was far to meek and soft for me through most of the book. By the last sixth of the book he had a little bit more of a backbone but still had undercurrents of the nauseating self pity. If you can get past this the book is amazing. Also was a pretty good performance. I will continue listening to sequels in hope of the main character evolving into more of a hero and less of the wimpy crybaby he seemed to be for so much of this first book. Like I said, this series has potential.

I find the protagonist, Rsiran an interesting character. He defied his orders and was sent to the mines as punishment. He managed to escape and he joined a group of thieves. He has the power of "sliding" and made good use to help his friends. Not a bad start to a new series and worth continuing.

I'd read a mixed range of reviews around the book. however as I was drawn to the book and story I thought 'Well its only a book lets try it.' it proved a good choice for me. I enjoyed the early slowish development of characters and introduction into the new world.
I found it a pleasure to read and was interested in the next book very quickly. Almost finished the second book - (1 hour left and a long trip coming up) and bought the third book.
I have enjoyed the readers performance . The voices are just a little different which enables you to follow the main characters fairly easy without lots of over delivery. its been a pleasure to enter this world.

Great book interesting concept main character had a good amount of back story but not to much enjoyed the read :) his ability is sick as
This is a great lite fantasy novel. A decent plot and a good performance from the narrator.
I would like to see the story line/plot expanded a little more in any further forays the author takes with the characters.
