    Quite jelly of that hardbound edition. The first 3 books are basically parts 1-4 of the story. It's 100% OK to completely ignore anything subsequent.

    By an insane coincidence I saw this in the window of a charity shop on my way home. Purchased for perusal tomorrow. Looks like it's 2nd or 3rd in a series?

    Yeah they're a solid 4/5 entertaining fantasy fiction. Nothing too deep or world-shattering, and the author can be a bit more self-indulgent than one would wish, but the central conceit is amusing...

    I have D&F, and it's a fucking hard job to read it, especially with all these Romans that have the same 5 damb names. Don't try and do it in one. It's a 6 volume work for a reason.
