So this book (and series) was recommended to me by my best friend who usually doesn't dabble much in this genre, so I knew it had to be interesting if she liked it so much.
I have to say that I quite enjoyed it, I do like a sweeping story where there's a lot of characters to focus on. I think my main complaint, which I've had with other books, is that the titles of the chapters sometimes ruin any surprise. Really, a little mystery isn't a bad thing, try to be a little more cryptic. I don't wanna say this is the best book I've ever read, but it's an interesting story. All and all, I'm up for book 2!!
