So, my friend recommended this book to me about a year ago I think. I though 'nah, doesn't sound like something for me', and moved on with my life, not really thinking about it. Then, the other day, my mom came home with number one and number two. There had been a sale, she told me, and it was books, obviously fantasy books, so she thought I might want them. So I took them. They are currently waiting to be put onto my shelf due to too little space, but now I'll have to give them a chance. I normally don't read high fantasy due to bad experience (apart from the Eragon books which I loved), but maybe this will be the book that will do it to me. The book that will turn my view of high fantasy, and make me into a lover. I most certainly hope so. I don't know for sure when I'll be reading it, but it will be soon. And I'll be looking forward to it.
