This is another one of those books I've been meaning read for a long time. My partner has told me about this series since we were kids. She's mentioned how much this book has influenced her as a person and as a writer and now that I've finally read it, I can see why.
This book is filled with so much magic in the traditional sense. It's what I like to call "old magic" and it takes me away to distant lands that I could never have imagined on my own. I love the characters and how distinct they are from one another. I love how certain sorcery is manifested in different sorceresses. I love the writing and how easy it is to get lost in this book. Basically, I love everything about this book.
If you love fantasy, magic, adventure, lore, then I can highly recommend this book. I know that I fell in love with it and I cannot wait to read the next two books in the trilogy.
