Journeyed there and back again
I could not get into that series. The characters were the main reason IIRC. The main female wasn't competent enough to feed her horse but then she is a genius banker?
Geder is interesting although I couldn't believe he did that bad thing in book 1. Dawson is an honourable but miserable old man that has no issues with slaves or treating underlings like crap. Not a real fan although I do like his wife and Jorey. And I do like Marcus and Yardem a lot as well as Master Kit. A lot of the characters in the court - Dawson's buddies and such are all a-holes.
