I love to explore genre fiction, and while I usually go for books with a romantic thread running through it, I just love great character and world building. And since I can hardly stand to let go of my favorite characters, I like series.
Rating: 3.5, or 4 maybe. I really dug this one. It's got some really masterful use of history and mythology; heck, it rekindled my affection for Ancient Egyptian lore. There's a whole hell of a whole lot going on though, so you'd have to hold on throughout the ride. ^_^Full review coming up shortly!
