I really enjoyed the frist book in the series, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. I liked Yeine and Nahadoth. Especially the Nightlord. He may be a god close to insanity but he was still someone i was rooted for. He was a sympathetic character. While the narrative wasn't the most coherent, what with the sometimes dual narrative, it was still interesting.As for The Broken Kingdom, i couldn't even finish the book. It was soooooo slow that i felt like pulling my hair out!! Oree was a dull character and that Itempas was so annoying that i didn't care what happened to him. Jemisim made him so vile in the first book that i didn't give a flying fuck what he did or didn't do. What an utter waste of time!!
