11/11 I'm a little less consumed this time through- primarily because I know how many more books I have to get through before Rudi gets where he's going. But love this series? Yes, I most emphatically do.12/10 I'm consumed by this post-apocalyptic, dystopian series. I'm enjoying it mightily, though I admit to skimming some of the "his sword sunk through the enemy's flesh like a slaughtering angel, the bright gouts of blood" blah blah blah. There's some delicate and delightful cribbing of tone from LotR, in addition to the more overt and equally fun homage. The switch of perspective from the older generation to the younger, post-Change set is welcome.
