This was a fun read. The fact that nearly every chapter is told by a different character really adds to it, as well as the plot twists. Through the different points of view, we also get a more comprehensive glimpse of the setting than a lot of stories of this length give us.
My WIP novel Rise of The Shadow Lord deals with the effects of war and prejudice on a society and the individual. Each of the major character deal with a different facet, with varying degrees of morality.
I picked up this book thanks to the suggestion of a friend. I want to read more classic fantasy novels and my friend thought it would be a good fit especially since I have an animal like race in my upcoming novel Rise Of The Shadow Lord.
