Sure, it's a huge rambling mess but once you get into it you are carried along at quite a pace. 782 pages almost seems to short...

At almost 900 pages in length, this book is quite a feat to read, but I think it's well worth the effort. I'm not usually fond of fairytale fiction with magic as the main theme, but the style of writing drew me in, and the plot had enough action to keep my interest.
