More like 3.5 but let's bump to 4.
This was a fun first book for a series I will definitely continue to read. Some sections did drag a lot, hence my less-than-perfect score. The story and universe do bring some original and imaginative aspects to the fantasy genre and it is extremely well written. Now that the background for the characters and the world are set, I have high expectations of what is to come in the next books. Looking forward to that!
