I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
And I got it.
Epic fantasy in a brilliant world. Dark and sinister. But also a lot more light-hearted than the Thorn-triology. Some banter, humor and the worst-best hero ever.
It felt quite long and substantial - and other than with the Prince of Thornes I am not sure I want to read on, as Jal's and Snorri's story feel quite finished to me.
