To reach greatness you must step on bodies, and many brothers lie trodden in my wake. I've walked from pawn to player and I'll win this game of ours, though the cost of it may drown the world in blood. The land burns with the fires of a hundred battles as lords and petty kings fight for the Broken Empire.

First part of an excellent trilogy that weaves in and out of itself before coming together in a crescendo. Each book jumps between different points in time before converging at the end, and the trilogy itself does the same. It's like walking through a forest, then turning around and realising all the trees line up. Once you realise this, it makes perfect sense and works very well. It's well worth investing your time in the trilogy, which unlike most of other fantasy series actually does come to an end rather than just keep going. Personally, seeing that a book is something like "Book Eight of the Zongara Saga" means I won't bother. This, however, is a trilogy with a beginning, middle and, devastating, end.
