What can I say I fell in love this book. It has more surprises than a George R.R. Martin main character killing spree! This is one of the very few books I had the end predicted by the 1/4 of reading the book. Bravo. It is a long twisting path, just like the main character's life and if you like thieves, mages, murder, fights, politics and mummery this book will not let you down.
