Solid fantasy series but the books are quite short and aren't published very quickly. Otherwise, the world-building is a little lacking which can usually be offset by strong central characters but as the point of view changes often it's harder to identify with the MC. Some of the scenes from the point of view of the many "evil" characters are longer then they need to be. I found myself speedreading through many chapters told from these points of view. The MC is also a little emotionally deficient, understandable to a degree given his origin, but it still makes it harder to identify with him. In summary, I enjoyed the series but would prefer a more MC centric story.
