I think if you really enjoy military fantasy, this would be a good fit. I was going into it thinking the master-student dynamic was going to be a central point, but then we split the party about 50 pages in and they don’t reunite until around the 450 pages mark, which was a little disappointing. It feels like the first half (maybe even 75%) was exposition for book 2 and that was a slog to get through. There were some really likeable characters and once we finally get introduced to them all and get into the swing of their stories, the pace really picked up. Especially when those characters all finally collided in the same location. The last 100 or so pages was really great and gives me hope that book 2 will be a really good read (as long as the pace stays where it’s at and we don’t regress).
