... So far, I like it a lot better than Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.
I staggered through the first book in Jordan's Wheel series and never touched another one - do they get better?
If you didn't like the first one you won't like the rest. I found they started to bog down around book 5 or so. And each further book just seemed like another 800 pages of inconsequential stuff for the purpose of dragging the story out.
That said I did enjoy Book 12 more than many of the previous ones - I'm not sure if it's because the story is finally starting to get towards the finish or because it was (partly) written by somebody else.
