I expected to like it a lot more than I did. I thought the author was very condescending, not only to the characters but the reader as well. There was a random skip to a different POV and a completely random and unnecessary change to omniscient third person. I also wasn't happy about how some of the basic information about the world wasn't explained until halfway through the book. It was okay, and I'll probably read the other books eventually but they aren't high on my list.
