I just love this author. I was excited to see a new series by him, it did not disappoint. The worlds he creates are so easy to get lost in.
When I read the first book in a fantasy series I usually begin to crave more action as there is so much focus on world building, this is especially so with a book thelat is introducing a complex magic system as this one did. I did not have that problem with this book and felt it was evenly balanced. In this we get a city with industrialized magic.
I love the way the author builds his characters with layers. One minute you love them, the next not so much.
So much anticipating the second book.
