I’m not sure what to say here. I bought the book. I finished. And… I don’t know. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. The third one I liked, except that I thought it was too long (yea, I’d cut at least a third). Still, I loved the story and the characters and the world. I felt this book had the same problem with wordiness (yes, I skimmed large sections), but like before, I was all into the story. And then it ended and I was like “what??????” Maybe it’s just me because I know why he did what he did and I understand it even. I just didn’t like it. Especially after investing so much time into such a huge book. *shrugs* I don’t know. If you love fantasy, especially complex world building type fantasy, read it. You’ll like it. Just be prepared for a lot of words and an ending that might not be as you expected.
