I guess this is my kind of book.
The book is set up kind of interesting, and I actually expected more to happen within the book of the book. But it kept me well interested and I purchased the sequel right after, which I am now losing sleep over. Literally. I can barely stay awake to write the review because I spent half the night reading the sequel, The Wise Man's Fear.
Anyways great book includes, tragedy, love, adventure, music, sadness, happiness, poverty, spitefulness, and magic!
I would highly recommend this book. I'm currently trying to find another book that would similar to this series as I have a lot of travel ahead of me and know I will need something to fill my mind with.
