R. Scott Bakker‘s The Thousandfold Thought, the third book in his The Prince of Nothing series, was well written and drenched in enough details that you truly could see the picture the author painted. The most amazing thing has been to watch the characters evolve through different influences and to see characters that you liked become characters you could hate.
My favorite part of The Prince of Nothing was the fact that it didn’t end happily. The ending left me thinking, “Wow! That sucks!” and yet it fit the mold — it was realistic and really summed up how things had evolved.
