    Emotional and well thought out. Not really action-heavy, but definitely an amazing fantasy series.

    The writing was ok but the book was depressing. I won't be reading the next one. The ending seemed thrown together.

    Really enjoyed having the story's plot being told by the less than perfect hero, the would-be king's bastard. Also liked how the human-animal magic was interplayed into the
    cast of characters with just a sprinkling of mythological magical beings.

    Didn't like ending. For a man to decide not to see his children is ludicrous. Just didn't sit well. First book was good, but I felt it fell off the rails.

    The writing is amazing and the plotting is brilliant in how subtle it is. It works well enough on its own, but it is only the foundation for a much larger series. The Realm of the Elderlings is astounding as a whole.
