Read full description of the books:
I almost don't feel like I should rate and review this book because it feels like my experience was tainted by things that may or may not be the fault of the book. I rate and review everything I read though, so I ended up breaking down and doing so. Anyone who is a fan of the basic high fantasy should ignore me right off, because I'm not big into it. I'm also not big into series books in general, much less wandering into the fourth book in a series without having read the first three. However, a convention I attended (which was not a fantasy convention where a majority of attendees could have been expected to have read the first three books) put this in the goodie bag. Thus, I read it. Some series you can wander in at any book and things still work okay. I don't think that's the case here, unless the style of the book itself would have annoyed me anyway. It's possible. It seemed like fancy fluff that was primarily concerned with being fancy fluff. It felt like someone at a ren fair going on and on without any concern that anyone being forced to listen was interested, and utterly unaware that they were not. It wasn't even until the final third of the book that I really started to care at all, and not much then. The world, despite the text being seemingly bloated with it, was not very clear to me. I just never cared much what happened to it, or the people in it. Some, but not enough. By the end I didn't mind that I'd read, but I didn't think that much of it and was primarily grateful to be done. It had been a slog. I imagine this is suited to a style that isn't one I favor, as it seems like others I've seen people have thought well of, but it could also be due to not having read the other three books. If it's my fault, I'd rate the book four stars. If it's the books fault, which I wouldn't have known unless I'd gone out and gotten (and read) the other three books first (but I wouldn't have been talked into that by a free book, this book being the only convincing that could be done), I'd have rated it two stars. Due to not knowing how to account, I split the difference and everyone should just ignore me anyway. Honestly, why give away the fourth book in a series at a general interest convention? People who have the background will likely already get the book or not, and everyone else isn't likely to go out and buy and read just to get up to speed. There's just no way it'd go well.
