I've been babbling about this since I read it -- I really enjoyed this. Keeping in mind that I don't read much epic fantasy to begin with, this is like epic fantasy for fantasy veterans in that it breaks a lot of the expected tropes in half. It's political and working itself up to something more dire, but philosophical and thinking about the connotations and consequences of a world whose gods have died but where their power hasn't quite faded. It was good. I think Malazan fans would like it. The second book just came out in the US today (yesterday?) and I may have to pick it up in the near future.… (mais)

Really a 3.5. Good enough to read the sequel; but not an OMGILOVETHIS book. Interesting premise. Refreshing lack of sexism and racism. I feel like he's trying to make a Point wrt religion and I don't yet know what it is, which prevents me from just getting into the plot.

Love the diversity, love the power-and-responsibility themes (how do the mice play when the cats are all dead, shades of Max Gladstone) but I just couldn't get into the narrative style, so setting aside.

Took a while to get in to this book. Lots of concepts to get your head around. Enjoyed it when I finally managed to do this! Library only had book 1 though, so...
