I truly cannot say enough good things about this series. The worldbuilding is excellent, the dialogue and story put together perfectly.

The characterization is relatable, funny and intelligent. I am off to more books by Mr Abraham. I've already read his excellent Long Price Quartet and know there has to be other stuff out there.

The audiobook is highly recommended--the narrator really knows his stuff.

EDIT 7/10/14 - Just as good the 2nd time around.

I am currently on Book 3 in this series and want it to end simply so I know the ending to the story. There are a few things that bother me about various characters (Cithrin and the drinking), but overall, this is a great installment in my Epic Fantasy library.

I had thought that there was no magic (or very little) to the story as a whole, but as of Book 2, I anticipate some very nasty things in Book 3/4.

I do anticipate that I'll be rereading the series again sometime after it's conclusion--whether in the next book or beyond. That in itself is my stamp of approval and recommendation to other readers.

I purchased the entire series as a Kindle book with the $4 Whispersync audiobook addons, but the narrator is so good that I've almost exclusively stuck to the audiobooks.

Well done [a:Daniel Abraham|134|Daniel Abraham|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1207149629p2/134.jpg]!

second book in the Kithamar Trilogy, about a medieval-style city that is a character in itself, a character with a big secret. the class differences, the two principals and their relationships, the characters in the City Guard, and the mystery they have to solve together gains momentum as all these elements further a fairly intricate storyline. i like Daniel Abraham a lot: co-author of The Expanse series, he tends to write outward from the characters, creating a story that develops in a natural way. this series is pretty light work for him, but creative all the same and the characters themselves are likeable and comfortable to curl up with, so it held my attention and i look forward to Part Three.… (more)
