I have just finished GOTM and will read Deadhouse Gates. For me GOTM was an ok read I have enjoyed other titles/authors far more but I'll read the next as popular opinion is it gets better. From there we will see. As a side note, I didn't really understand Paran's short relationship with Tattersail and where his intense passion for vengence comes from. I thought that 'connection' was hastily & quite frankly (in my opinion) badly written.
