The comparison to George R R Martin is a trifle misleading. This book is well worth a read and I look forward with pleasure to the next two books. I found his characters a little too busy surviving, plotting and killing to be fully developed, even in this comparatively long book, but the bones are there and I think will be fleshed out to the full in what follows. The world envisioned here is somewhat complicated but vitally interesting with the different races, feuds, faiths and ambitions all vying for attention. It is certainly not short of action as fanaticism struggles violently with apparent normality. Buckley manages to inject a little humanity even into the inhuman - the results of this leavening could well be extremely interesting.
