Best book in a long time...
The only reason that I would consider this is because I can experience the story while my eyes and hands are free for working.
Hard to say. It has similarities to other ideas and worlds but with it's own refreshing twist and view on all of it.
Sheesh... Just one?? I think every chapter had amazing scenes. Game changing ones, humorous ones, "holy crap" ones, gory ones ETC. I wouldn't even be able to whittle it down to just one.
A fantasy world you think you might understand... Till you realize you don't as it blows your mind.
I have the hard-cover of this book and I have read it 4 times. It made me remember that feeling when you read a good book... The one where you're reading in bed, occasionally realizing you should go to bed and you think, "As soon as I finish this chapter I'll stop." But you get to the end of said chapter... and NEED to read the next one.Being able to hear it narrated is awesome. The narrator's voice if perfect for the story and it's well read.There is pain. There is pleasure. There is gore. There is comedy. There is magical/spiritual energy. There is romance. The pace is not slow or fast, it seems just right. And there is badassery.The characters develop well. I wish some of them had more to do in the story... But only because I liked them so much. They had a lot of depth and a few had a lot of inner turmoil. As soon as I thought I had them figured out there would be a twist. It seems that even the "simple" minded characters had many facets to them.The romance that develops is properly "painful". I mean that in the sense that the life that they must "suffer" to be together is insurmountable... Every tiny victory makes you cheer. lolThe villains are well developed too. To the point that you actually get why they are doing the crazy they're doing.The "fight scenes" are very easily envisioned and well written... You will see it happening on the inside of you head.Also, I REALLY liked the way the magical abilities, "fey" energy, was depicted. It was a very cool way of making it different from other fantasy realms. Of course there are similarities to other things but the way abilities are learned and used was really unique.I also really liked how there were "secrets" in this book as well. Interesting character traits or occurrences that you had to be paying attention in order to catch. It was the exact opposite of assuming I am stupid... Despite me being kind of stupid sometimes.I also liked the world this story takes place in.I don't know if there is anything that I disliked about this book.
