    Plot marred by poor writing

    The world building and plot here are not bad, if a bit predictable. Unfortunately, Martin's prose is wooden and often breaks the epic atmosphere. The narrative pacing is also poor. More than once the climax of a major plot conflict comes and goes too quickly to be satisfying after such a long build up. Martin's characters barely escape being flat stock types. The fact that I finished the book is testament to the decent plot--and the money I had spent on it.

    The Blood King

    Awesome book and a great end to the first. Hopefully the next keeps up with the great story being told.
