Another reviewer used the word "riveting," which strikes me as the perfect description for my experience with this marvelous book. I listened to the audio production in my car, and found myself frustrated every time I reached a destination because I didn't want to have to stop listening. I was riveted, desperate to keep going and reach the end. Now I've reached the end and I find myself frustrated that the book is over, because I want it to keep going. It seems I just want this story to go on and on, all the time.

While there are some familiar elements at play in the book and the prose doesn't always leap off the page, the characters and world are complex enough to keep things fresh and surprising. The tension, plotting, and pacing are gripping without ever feeling rushed or frenzied, with plenty of time spent properly developing events and those involved. With its 450 pages, the book has offered plenty of information about this tale, its setting, and its main characters so I feel I know them well, yet I also feel we've barely scratched the surface and there's so much more yet to know. I want more.

4.5 stars.
