This book... I don't even know where to start with this.
First off, I hate giving negative reviews to books that were recommended to me by a friend. I tend to feel like a bit of a jerk when I finally get around to reading a recommended book, only to hate it. Then when your friend asks you how you liked the book a week later, you just kind of smile and nod and say, "It was good."
But, damn it, it wasn't good. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular from this book. It was meant to be a quick read, a little filler before starting The Wheel of Time series. Honestly, after reading this book, WoT is probably going to feel like the best...book....ever!
