Solid debut from a gifted guy. I did have trouble after my reading was interrupted, getting back into it. Not sure why. It's definitely complex and has a lot of characters to follow. IT's called Seven Princes for a reason. It's dark. But it's also engaging. I really got hooked early on getting into it so not sure why it was so hard to pick back up. Whatever the case, solid world building and storytelling and definitely worth a look for epic fantasy, sword and sorcery fans.
