The rock demon was fifteen feet tall. The rock demon was enormous.
You don't say.
I was recommended this series after having read [a:Mark Lawrence|4721536|Mark Lawrence|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1318781585p2/4721536.jpg]'s The Broken Empire series and, having absolutely adored that, I jumped into this with no hesitation. However, I found myself unable to become enchanted with it as so many have.
The premise is good, the plot as well (what little of it I read), and the characters are interesting. But I don't feel the writing is quite what it needs to be to live up to all the praise offered at the beginning of the book. I found myself looking up from reading to watch bits of S3 of Game of Thrones only to continue reading, but often picking up at a different paragraph from when I left off and feeling no remorse, no loss. That's not a very good sign.
I don't know, maybe it's because I just finished a fantastic series and then a lovely book, both of which captured my heart and left me wanting more, but I just can't get back the enthusiasm I had upon picking this up
Overall, it just didn't catch me the way I thought it would, the way I expected it to do.
