Steadily rising up my list of favorite series
When I first read The Last Wish it was purely on a whim. I saw it was on sale and bought it. I was interested after that collection of short stories, so I bought Blood of Elves. I finished it quickly and came to the conclusion that it was a very strong first novel of the actual series. Therefor I had to get The Time of Contempt, and it far outshown my expectations. The beginning of the novel is a bit slow, but after the first couple of hours the novel takes off at a breakneck pace. Everything about this book is intriguing, whether it be the intricate characters, the deceptively complex plot, or the well crafted world. I think my favorite part of the book was the plot, whitch really made me think to try and determine who was on who's side. By the end of the book, I can honestly say I am beautifully confused and excited for the next novel. I must comment that the ending is a bit strange and unexpected, but I need to read the next book to properly judge. The one flaw I started to notice about this book are the character names. There are many characters in this book and their names are extremely complex and hard to keep straight. I can attribute this to the book being written by a Polish author though and I really didn't have that much of a problem, it is just a slight issue. Despite this book being fantastic I must admit that one of the best parts was the narrator. He has a beautiful voice that is perfect for storytelling, especially this kind of story. I highly recommend this book, it is well worth the time and money.
