Hi, Rob. I'm assuming you mean the Kiernan since you mentioned elsewhere that that one didn't work well for you. In truth, I was less taken with it than with The Red Tree, possibly because the main character is more overtly passive, but I still found it well-worth my time. I expect to reread them sometime in the future, and one after the other because I have a feeling the two books play off each other to some degree -- Kiernan could almost package them as the fire and ice duology.
